Grandma Vi's Ginger Cookies

This recipe comes from my Mother-in-Law's recipe box.  Perhaps she is smiling down on me today as I made her recipe :)  Sure helped the house smell good and warm up as its a lovely 37 degrees here in Morris, MN today.........................Spring was last weekend I guess and we are back to FALL or winter?  Winter in some parts of the state and thankfully (for me) not mine!

Have a great day and whip up these cookies - they didn't take long at all.
