Kevin needed more recipes tested, so I volunteered again. This time I tried a ginger cookie one. Colin was disappointed it wasn't chocolate -that man would eat broccoli if I covered it in chocolate. The cookies turned out great, but the recipe had some extra steps that weren't really needed. I streamlined the recipe for modern cooks. Personally, I don't mind the old recipes that have you do things the old way, ie sifting dry ingredients 4 times, etc, but I just like doing things the old way.
I rolled the cookies as directed, but then I did some the easy way and just made balls and dipped into sugar. They actually turned out better that way, moister.
