Ginger Cookies

Ginger cookies probably don’t get the respect they deserve.  I often forget about them, but I recently saw an easy recipe and knew a certain man in my life would enjoy eating them, and you all probably would enjoy making them for your families.  I love having cookies in the freezer that Mr. Right can pull out and pop into the microwave for a quick snack.  I try to keep them seasonal meaning that there are certain flavors that seems better at certain times of the year.  With fall weather, football, autumn picnics, and tailgating right around the corner, I wanted to make a cookie that would have a heavier, spicy flavor.  When I saw the recipe, I knew they would be the perfect fall dessert or snack. They would also be great for an after school snack for the littles who need a pick-me-up in the late afternoon.  I hope you enjoy making it.  This recipe source is
