Nauvoo Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I don't understand the raves about this recipe. While the texture and appearance are nice, the cookies are extremely bland - taste like bread. Not worth eating. I had to drastically revise the recipe to give the cookies any flavor - substitute half brown sugar, triple the cinnamon and ginger, plus add a generous amount of clove, cardamom and nutmeg. This gave more flavor. Even so, I will look elsewhere for a more flavorful recipe with more molasses and spice flavor and zing.
