Gingerbread Cookies II
December 28, 2004

I hate giving a bad review to a favorite recipe of another, but these tasted awful and I was extremely dissapointed. The shortening taste is more pronounced than it should be and the taste of molasses and cloves is overwhelming. For the cost of the spices and the time it takes to work the dough together, this recipe was a huge let down (my son and I had planned on decorating gingerbread men and had all the fixings to do so - we decided to make another dessert after tasting the cookie) I would choose a recipe with a "sweeter" base. These are spicy, but not in a way that will be pleasing to children and I have to agree with another reviewes when they said these tasted like dog biscuits. Sorry!!
