Soft, Ginger Cookies

Recipes

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I spent mine in Mississippi visiting my husband's family. What a joy it was having all the siblings together!

My mother-in-law is in LOVE with ginger cookies and is constantly on the hunt for the perfect one. My sister-in-law found a recipe on www.tasteofhome.com and they were, big, soft and perfectly delicious! I hope you enjoy them as well.
