Great easy ginger cookie recipe. I've been on the hunt for a "large, soft" ginger cookie recipe since having to pay my left arm for one at the coffee shop. As called for in the recipe, I used margarine instead of better (which I NEVER do) because I really wanted a chewy cookie (as opposed to a flattened version by using butter). Cookie held their shape beautifully - didn't grow nor shrink - and I wouldn't have known it was margarine if I hadn't used it myself. If you want a 4" cookie, don't be stingy on the dough when you roll and press it - it's not going to get any bigger or thicker than the raw cookie. Certainly a good recipe to send the smells wafting through the house. I personally like more spices so will try again with more molasses and spice and of course, make them a lot larger.
