Ginger Cookies

A recipe my mom always made for us. I think she is the reason I love all those nutty spices like ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves - the list goes on and on. These are great with a nice cup of tea for dipping! The dough needs to chill 2 hours before rolling out for cutting - so allow this extra time. The amount of cookies will vary depending on the size and shape of the cookie cutters you use. For a standard 2" round cutter, you will get approximately 40 cookies from this recipe.
