These are very simple. I scooped these with a small ice cream scoop, but after scooping, it's important to roll with hands to get that "crinkle" look.

I made these with Splenda instead of sugar...FABULOUS! They were a little more cakey than ginger snaps this way, but a big hit nonetheless.

Crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside! I sprinkled a bit of sugar over my cookies prior to baking. Very tender and delicious cookie!

Best cookies ever! Was hesitant to use 4 egg yolks but it was totally worth it. Didn't have butter so used Imperial instead and dipped the tops in sugar sprinkles before baking. Crunchy on the edges, chewy in the middle. Perfect!
