A great and relatively healthy dessert that comes out of a recipe made for kids and to be cooked by kids. Don’t limit yourself to the holiday season for these great cookies – their great anytime of the year. Feel free to go lower on the ginger powder if you’re not a big fun of the spice, but put in at least ¾ of that the recipe calls for.
