    These cookies were so good. I did add crystallized ginger, finely chopped and a little bit of cardamon. I shared with neighbors and still had a lot left. I will make these again.

    Turned out good, the only thing is they flattened out after taking them out of the oven. Followed recipient no modifications.

    Little too much salt and baking soda. Didn’t stay soft like they were supposed to. Needed to add more ginger and crystallized ginger to get a mild ginger flavor. Good flavor otherwise.

    Easy peasy, I did half the sugar and it was sweet enough for me. I added a bit of crumbled walnuts to give a bit of texture. Thumbs up!

    A lovely cookie without having to change it in any way. I made half the recipe and it was great (made 30 cookies so a full recipe would be huge).

    Soft and gingery. Added ginger chunks to the top for an extra kick.

    Very good. Next time I might add another 1/4 teaspoon of ginger just to make it a bit more spicy.

    I added nutmeg, allspice and vanilla and it made for a very well rounded spice cookie

    I made them a lot bigger, pressed them down a bit & baked for an additional 8-10 min. So yummy!

    I enjoyed these. They needed 10 minutes in the oven, but the taste was perfect.

    Amazing! I used fresh grated ginger and substituted some cream cheese for butter and used 1/3 less sugar and it came out just amazing!

    These tasted great! I made a half batch and the recipe scaled back well.

    Made a half-batch. Used 1 rounded t cinnamon, about 1/3 t cloves, generous 1 t ginger and about 1/4 t nutmeg. Used light brown sugar instead of white. Bake only 7 min and let cool on cookie tray until able to move them (about 3 minutes).
