These are now my favorite cookies. Everyone I shared them with loved them and said they were one of the best cookies that they have ever tasted and much better than store bought cookies. Because my spice rack was getting a little empty, I did add a bit more cinnamon and some allspice to compensate for the wee bit of ginger I had. I also added one shake of black pepper and one drop of anise extract just to be crazy. I made some that were bigger - I took a ball of dough the size of a big walnut, flattened it so it was about 1/2 inch think and 2 inches round, dipped one side of it into white sugar and then then baked it. These turned out about the size of store bought cookies. I also made some smaller ones. I took dough about the size of my thumb tip, rolled it into a ball, rolled the entire ball in sugar and then baked them. These turn out about the size of store bought gingersnaps. These cookies are perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And, I imagine Hannakah and Kwanza, too. I just made these yesterday and I already have to make another batch because they are already gone. So, they are a good "everyday" cookie as well. Enjoy!
