In short, I adore these cookies. I have made them approximately 1,000 times and they always come out just right. Everyone I have ever fed them to has loved them, and they are just unique enough that people think you're really fancy. But secretly they are the easiest cookie ever.
I never plan far enough ahead to chill the dough, but that's never caused me any problems. I think it's really just so it's easier to roll, though I would really know because (all together now) I never plan far enough ahead to try.
It is also often the case that I don't have any fresh ginger on hand, so I just add some extra ground ginger and they still taste delicious, a holiday and every day favorite.
Give them a try and let me know what you think.
And tell me, what are your go-to holiday recipes?
