I am usually happy with the recipes that I get from this site, but I was very unhappy with this one. After following the recipe to the T, my dough was entirely too dry. I added what I could to make it more workable. After kneeding so much, when I cut out the cookies and baked them, they were very tough. I even cooked them for a shorter period of time. Needless to say, while I love gingerbread and gingersnaps, I will not be using this one again.
