This recipe for ginger cookies from my grandmother and is very similar to the recipe from Hubby's grandmother for molasses cookies. Oddly enough, Hubby doesn't like ginger, so he only tastes ginger. I taste very little ginger because of the molasses. To each his own. The recipe below is exactly as I received it, so I offer the following: Large Egg, all purpose flour, bake for 10 - 12 minutes.
