Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies

One of my very favorite things about the holiday season is ginger cookies, gingersnaps, gingerbread, name it, I love it!  I stumbled upon this recipe and it will be added to my ginger collection!  Dont over cook them, they stay soft and chewy and are super easy to make!
