I adjusted the recipe a bit, using 1/4 cup butter in place of some of the shortening, and doubling the ginger. I really liked these cookies, and so did my kids. If you make them the size the recipe says (teaspoonful), you will get 83 cookies - I did. And they are the typical gingersnap size. I did not have any issues with the dough holding together. Perhaps those cooks who did used too small of an egg, or are not experienced with cookie making? I did press mine down a bit with a glass, like most gingersnap recipes say to; I figured this recipe accidentally left that part out. I baked mine on stones, so they needed more like 7-8 minutes instead of 5-6.
Watch out, they are quite addictive!:-)
