I cooked these cookies at 375 for about 18 minutes to make them a little more crisper, if you like them chewy 12-15 should do it. They're a nice cookie with tea or milk since they are quite dry and they're milder than a ginger snap if you don't like the strong taste ginger snaps usually have. Kids would enjoy them because they're so mild, its a nice autum cookie.

I baked the cookies at 375 for 10 to 12 minutes. Not great, but good if you want ginger cookies and you don't have molasses

Should baking soda or powder be included in the ingredients?

Important info is missing from this recipe and I added it from another butter cookie recipe. First, there is nothing to make these cookies rise. Second it doesn't say what temperature to bake at.
