In addition to being some of the best spice cookies you’ll ever eat, these may also be the easiest since you don’t need an electric mixer to prepare the dough. You can also make them without diced apples, or substitute dried cranberries.

these are so flavorful, this is the 2nd time I have made them and they come out flat and sticky on the bottom. So I was just wondering if the flour is the correct amount. Thanks.

I just finished making these... in fact, the last cookie sheet is still in the oven. Just the right combination of ginger and spices. Excellent recipe. Definitely two thumbs up!

So, looking though the site for some different cookie recipes and found yours. The ingredients of course caught my eye first, but then was intrigued as its purely vegan! I'm not vegan but am open to try anything.....and these cookies are my new favorite all time cookie! My neighbors are Vegetarians and I have emailed them this site and this recipe for them to try as well! I'm sure anyone who tries this recipe will be pleased! All ingredients compliment each other!
