I followed the recipe to the T, except added 1/2 tsp more ginger and also cinnamon. It turned out too dry and flaky and wouldn't bind so I had to add more water - I'd say I added another 1/3 of a cup. Because the dough was so stiff I didn't chill it - it rolled well but it was difficult to get very thin. I used 4" cutters and the recipe made 16 cookies - not sure why the recipe says 5 servings? So the Nutrition Info is incorrect.
I only baked them for 9 minutes and 12 would have been WAY too long for sure! Thank goodness I am an obsessive watcher of my baking! They were quite cakey, but I like that, however even with extra spice they still weren't very gingery. Would be good for people who like it very mild! Was great to decorate and it is more delicious the day after for sure! It's not super sweet, so that's what sold me on this recipe in the end!
