My husband asked for "soft ginger cookies" like his mom used to make for Christmas. While she was looking in her files, I found a ginger cookie recipe from this site that was very good: chewy, but very flat, and not exactly like the cookies my husband wanted. I finally got the recipe and made it...and now I find the recipe posted here! It is fabulous. The dough is very stiff, but it is very managable if using a stand mixer. The only difference was that my recipe didn't indicate that the dough should be chilled so I bake them right away. The dough was not at all sticky as I had feared, but rolled very easily into balls. I baked for 9 minutes, and they came out perfect with chewy centers, crispy edges, and a beautiful crackled top. They were very lofty just coming out of the oven, but did fall some as they cooled...but they still weren't as flat as the other recipe I tried. I used butter flavored shortening and have eaten entirely too many of them already!
