I read most of the reviews and substituted OJ instead of water. I omitted 1/4 c. sugar because when I dropped the balls into the sugar and rolled them, it made them super sweet. It's easier to deal with if you let the dough sit a few minutes and just spoon it right into the sugar. Also, I did what most reviewers said and put the balls into the fridge for 10 min while oven heated. I only lightly patted them down (hardly at all) and they came out perfect. I did FULL teaspoon balls of dough and I actually had tons of extra cookies. They are smaller but perfect for cookie exchanges. 3 batches made 94 cookies for me and a few extra for tasting. I put the dough balls on paper plates and then made the batches on two dark non-stick pans at 8 min per pan with 2 min cooling then moved to rack. I added extra 1/4 tsp of ginger to last batch and they are a little more spicy (yum)! photo shows plated balls, pan balls slightly smashed, then finished cookie. They are really soft.
