Wonderful cookies! Before I made these, I read probably 1/2 the reviews and tips. I decided to make it with extra ginger.. simply divine!
I saw in a few reviews that they added more flour, or they omitted the water (liquid) altogether.. I don't recommend this. You can add 1 Tbsp of liquid to any cookie recipe if you want it to be softer/chewier. This is the trick for any cookie recipe.
Another tip, I took out the very first batch exactly at 10 mins, but they were falling apart as I was transferring it to the rack, so I carefully put them back on the baking sheet and waited for the batch that was in the oven to finish baking (14 mins is best for me) then I placed it back in the oven and it rose up again and after 5 mins it was perfect.
For the extra sugar sprinkling, I dipped the bottom of the dough ball in sugar; placed it on the sheet, then I dipped my fingers in the sugar and flattened the tops halfway. I also found that you must cool completely before you put in a jar or they will fall apart and mush up.
Thank you for this awesome recipe!
