  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix, baking soda and ginger. Make a well in the center and pour in the water, molasses and vanilla. Mix until thoroughly blended. Roll into 10 balls and place them 3 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Flatten slightly.

So easy and So good! The flavor was wonderful and the texture was soft in the middle and a little harder along the edges. They melted in our mouths! We shared them with friends and they loved t...

These are okay - mine flattened down on their own and spread out, so I had a sheet of cookies that I had to cut apart. I tried putting 12 on a sheet. I made 17 cookies total, but they all ended ...

Not awful, but not that good either. They get too crispy for our liking. We'll keep looking for a better recipe...
