I looked at the recipe and thought it could use a little more flavor, so I added 1 tsp. of vanilla to the wet mix and 1/4 tsp of ginger and a pinch of cloves to the dry mix and it turned out great. The baking time was closer to 12 minutes, but i prefer my cookies a bit more chewy than crispy.

These are delicious! I made the recipe as is, no alterations. They did not spread too much at all. I wouldn't call them "snaps" because they are chewy, but I prefer chewy cookies so they're perfect. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't have a problem with the cookies spreading too much. I used real butter and softened it by smashing it up with a wooden spoon rather than the microwave. That might be why they didn't get super thin in the oven.

Very good! Initially, I thought that dropping the dough by 1/2 teaspoon increments wasn't large enough, but it definitely is, so don't make my mistake and drop by 1 teaspoon increments; this dough spreads quite a bit. I'm going to add some coconut the next time I make these. As written though, this is a fabulous recipe! Thanks for sharing it.
