After reading the reviews on this one, I took the advice of other reviewers and added another 1/2 tsp of ground ginger plus 1/2 a tsp of salt. They turned out to be VERY tasty. Served them to the Elemetary School Administration with hot, spiced apple cider. YUMMY!

These were good, but I was disappointed in the flavor.I felt that they needed more "spice",maybe more ginger???? I would add more next time.
