I have two complaints about how this recipe was written. 1) It starts off saying to preheat the oven to 350 in step 1. Then by step 4 (or something like that) it tells you to wrap dough and stick in refrigerator for 1 1/2 hours! That is a long preheat. 2) They tell you to put dough in 10" logs, but don't tell you how wide or how tall the dough should be. One measurement is not enough. I need two. I had to guess. I made my bars about 1/2" high which seems fine.
These are good, but a little more effort than many other spice cookies that I love. I hate raisins so I tried them with chopped dates, which I do like. That worked out well. I love the ginger in them also. Again, these are just fine, but if I was craving a spicy cookie, I think I would choose this or this.
