Ginger Snaps II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2014
This recipe is great as is and needs no changes. That being said, as a matter of preference and after reading various reviews, I added 1-1/2 of the spices (omitted the cloves only because I have an allergy to cloves) and added a little less than 1/4 tsp. of cayenne. The blend of spices was excellent. Be sure to refrigerate several hours and your cookies will spread out but not like "crackers" as one reviewer mentioned. Thank you for sharing! Best Ginger Snap ever! Lynn, Pastry Chef, Chesterland, OH

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
I have tried many chocolate chip cookie recipes and this is one of the best! However, I make a few changes to any chocolate chip recipe which I believe enhances the flavor - I use chopped pecans instead of walnuts and I add 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon, no more. Everyone has raved about my chocolate chip cookies in the past. The pecans and cinnamon really enhance the flavor but you have to be careful not to overdo the cinnamon or it will overpower the flavor. Pecans are more flavorful I feel to a chocolate chip cookie. I use walnuts in many other recipes but once I discovered the taste of pecans in choc chips, I've never used anything else. Love this recipe! Note to all bakers: always use a flat air cushion cookie tray rather than what many believe is a cookie tray and is actually a jelly roll pan. This could be JOHNDL's problem. Using a tray with sides will made the outside edges of a cookie bake sooner and crisper than the inside - baking is not even.
