Chewy Ginger Snap Cookie Recipe

My family loves Ginger snaps, but not how hard they are. As a result, I have created the perfect soft, chewy ginger snap, although I guess it is not truly a ginger snap, but more of  a ginger cookie!

My family has gobbled these up in no time, so I am making an other batch tomorrow!
