imageHere is another recipe from Grandma D’s ward cookbook. When I made these cookies they were full of flavor and very yummy. If you want an easy recipe for amazing ginger cookies, I have it right here for you.
This is not one of grandma’s recipes, but as usual, her friends did not let me down, with another fantastic recipe.
I forgot to roll the cookies in sugar. ha-ha! I will next time because I’m sure they will be even more amazing with the sugar coating. Sorry about the crowded cookies, I put them to close on my cookie sheet; they stuck together. These cookies will not disappoint!
