SO I've made 4 batches already this week. THe last batch I perfected it. I don't know why but the first two batches I used butter instead of margarine and it turned out flat and too soft, almost on the mushy side. Maybe it was the butter and/or the fact that I baked them for 8mins only. The last two batches I used a half margarine half butter product that I bought from the store, and it was much better. I also followed previous advice and put the dough in the freezer for 30 mins, then hand rolled them into balls. I didn't roll them into the sugar either. For my gas oven, 9 minutes was perfect...not too cooked, and not too mushy. In my last batch I used only 3/4 cup of sugar and it was still plenty sweet. Orange juice instead of water was also great advice...brings out the flavour of the spices. Oh, with my older batches that turned out a bit mushy, I froze them, and made ginger cookie ice cream sandwhiches with vanilla icecream as recommended by someone else, and it was a super yummy idea!!!
