Revisited: Simple Soft and Chewy Ginger Cookies – Yum! [Food]

January 11th, 2017

I revisited these cookies a couple of times over the holiday season — once for my annual cookie party and then as something to share when visiting friends. In both cases — and almost universally — these cookies are a great hit with nearly everyone. In fact, the have become one of my favorite cookies — if not THE favorite — of anything else I make.

Even better, they are nearly foolproof to make. Some other recipes — like most baking — can be a bit fussy, but I have made these in my big KitchenAid mixer, with a hand mixer and even mixed them by hand with a wooden spoon.
