Its a lot of fun to bake a batch of cookies, and I recently ran across a really good chewy gingerbread cookie recipe. I usually have to bake many batches to finally accomplish the perfect gingerbread cookie. When the dough is rolled thin, it will bake crisp and almost cracker-like. Yet, when rolled thick (my preference), the cookies turn out plump and moist. In either case, the flavor will be complex and almost hot-spicy.
