Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2014
Great cookies. As you can see from mi pic they started disappearing as soon as they were cool enough to touch. I used butter instead of margarine because, come on, it's butter. Margarine is for birds. Cooked them off in the freezer before rolling so they wouldn't be so sticky. Kids sprinkled decorative green and red sugar on top before baking. Next time I'll make them much smaller: walnut sized for real, and spread out further. Mine were big and overlapped, also they are really soft so the bigger ones broke when removing from the pans.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Made this tonight and wish I had put a cookie sheet under them while baking or baked them in a pan. The sugar mixture gets pushed up and out as the rolls expand. It dripped down onto my oven (pain in the butt I have to clean it now) and nearly caught fire. Smoked out the whole house. I wish I had read the reviews earlier as others have had the same problem. The recipe should be re-written. Also, I added the raisins and the rolls, although fluffy and soft, are too sweet to eat. I will make these again but use 1/8 cup of sugar in the dough and make 1/2 as much cinnamon goo, omit the raisins, and bake in a pan. I also will roll the dough out to a 24"x 30" sheet before rolling. The recipe says to roll it out to a 12x9 rectangle but at that size mine was about 3" thick still.
