Oh y'all!! I made the BEST Ginger Cookies yesterday!! I usually like to make gingersnaps, but I was looking for something that was less fattening. I found this recipe and I LOVE these!! They were good last night, but they were even BETTER today!! They are so soft and very tasty!

You know, I had really wanted to take a picture of the cookies to show y'all, but, um, well, you see, we ate them all already!!
