SOFT GINGER COOKIES


Crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, these cookies
are wonderfully flavored with ginger.


Mix, dip, roll in sugar, flatten slightly on a cookie sheet .... bake ...
it doesn't take long to whip us these yummy cookies.


Wonder what makes them crack so perfectly?


Warm out-of the-oven ginger cookies together with a mug of Tim Hortons ...
sounds like the ultimate treat for certain people.


This arrangement is exactly ½ recipe of Soft Ginger Cookies,
on page 264 in ...."At Home in the Kitchen" ... cookbook.
