I came up with these cookies by combining ingredients from two recipes. It's the perfect ginger cookie-crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. I send them to my son, and he shares them with his employees. Whenever I ask what kind of cookies to send, these are at the very top of the list. -Judy Wilson, Sun City West, Arizona

CRISPY GINGER COOKIES
I originally found this recipe in my mother's cookbook although I altered the recipe/ingredients around a bit. These cookies are crisp with a medium ginger taste which isn't too overpowering yet adds a good flavor to the cookies. Note: I found it easier to use your hands to mix the flour, ginger, cornflakes and butter, sugar and egg mixtures together. Just be sure not to over-mix it. Also, keep an eye on the cookies after the ten minute mark as mine started to turn golden brown pretty quickly.

- Preheat oven to 180º Celsius (356º Fahrenheit).
- Use an electric beater to beat the butter and sugar together. Beat until the mixture is combined and has become creamy.
- Add the egg and continue to beat well.
- Add the flour, crystallised ginger and half of the cornflakes (1 cup). Mix together with either a spoon or your hands.
- On a tray, crush the rest of the cornflakes with a rolling pin until the cornflakes are fine.
- Scoop a teaspoonfull of the mixture and use your hands to shape into balls which you then roll in the cornflakes you crushed earlier.
- Grease a baking tray with cooking spray/butter or cover with baking paper. Put the cornflake covered balls on the tray about 5cm apart from each other. Flatten the top of the ball with a fork gently.
- Bake for 10-20 minutes until the cookies are firm and have a light, golden color.
- Leave cookies on the baking tray for a couple of minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. The cookies start to really crispen once cooled.
THIN, CRISP GINGERBREAD COOKIES
This is the followup recipe tp Chewy Ginger Cookies from Cook's Illustrated. These gingersnap-like cookies are sturdy and therefore suitable for making ornaments. If you wish to thread the cookies, snip wooden skewers to 1/2-inch lengths and press them into the cookies just before they go into the oven; remove skewers immediately after baking. Or, use a drinking straw to punch holes in the cookies when they're just out of the oven and still soft. Store in an airtight container. In dry climates, the cookies should keep about a month.

- In food processor workbowl fitted with steel blade, process flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt, and baking soda until combined,.
- about 10 seconds. Scatter butter pieces over flour mixture and process until mixture is sandy and resembles very fine meal, about 15 seconds. With machine running, gradually add molasses and milk; process until dough is evenly moistened and forms soft mass, about 10 seconds. Alternatively, in bowl of standing mixer fitted with paddle attachment, stir together flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt, and baking soda at low speed until combined, about 30 seconds. Stop mixer and add butter pieces; mix at medium-low speed until mixture is sandy and resembles fine meal, about 1 1/2 minutes. Reduce speed to low and, with mixer running, gradually add molasses and milk; mix until dough is evenly moistened, about 20 seconds. Increase speed to medium and mix until thoroughly combined, about 10 seconds.
- Scrape dough onto work surface; divide into quarters. Working with one portion of dough at a time, roll 1/8-inch thick between two large sheets of parchment paper. Leaving dough sandwiched between parchment layers, stack on cookie sheet and freeze until firm, 15 to 20 minutes. Alternatively, refrigerate dough 2 hours or overnight.
- Adjust oven racks to upper- and lower-middle positions and heat oven to 325 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Remove one dough sheet from freezer; place on work surface. Peel off top parchment sheet and gently lay it back in place. Flip dough over; peel off and discard second parchment layer. Cut dough into 5-inch gingerbread people or 3-inch gingerbread cookies, transferring shapes to parchment-lined cookie sheets with wide metal spatula, spacing them 3/4 inch apart; set scraps aside. Repeat with remaining dough until cookie sheets are full. Bake cookies until slightly darkened and firm in centers when pressed with finger, about 15 to 20 minutes, rotating cookie sheets front to back and switching positions top to bottom halfway through baking time. Do not overbake. Cool cookies on sheets 2 minutes, then remove with wide metal spatula to wire rack; cool to room temperature.
- Gather scraps; repeat rolling, cutting, and baking in steps 2 and 4. Repeat with remaining dough until all dough is used.

INCREDIBLY CRISP GINGERSNAPS
In 1998, I was invited by Pat Adrian, director of the Good Cook division of the Book of the Month Club, to judge the group's annual office baking contest. There were luscious cakes, pies and cookies of all types, but these gingersnaps were the hands-down winners. Julie Ellis-Clayton, the winner of the contest, was kind enough to share her recipe with me.

- Set racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices in a bowl; stir well to mix. In the bowl of a standing electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together on medium speed the butter and sugar for about 5 minutes until very light, fluffy and whitened. Add the egg and continue beating until smooth. Lower speed and beat in half the dry ingredients, then the molasses. Stop the mixer and scrape down bowl and beater. Beat in the remaining dry ingredients. Remove bowl from mixer and use a large rubber spatula to finish mixing the dough. Use a small ice cream scoop to scoop out 1-inch diameter pieces of dough. Roll into balls between the palms of your the hands, then roll in the sugar. Place the balls of dough on the prepared pans leaving about 3 inches all around each, to allow for spreading. Bake the cookies for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until they have spread, the surface has crackled, and they are firm to the touch. Slide the papers from the pans to racks. Store the cooled cookies between sheets of parchment or waxed paper in a tin or platic container witha tight-fitting cover.
