Ginger Cookies

I love ginger snaps but sometimes I wish they were more soft instead of hard and crunchy. When I found this recipe I was excited to try it. They were as good as I thought they would be. They are sweet, soft, and they don't have an overwhelming ginger flavor. I added white chocolate chips to soften the flavor a bit and they were just like I hoped they would be.
