Grandma Dietrich's Ginger Cookies

This is an old family recipe handed down from my father's grandmother. At 97 Dad says he still remembers her making them. It is one of my favorite cookies. Good flavor but its soft chewy texture is why I like them so much. A great treat in the Fall with a glass of fresh cold cider.
