Add flour last mix well if needed you may add up to 1/2 cup more flour to get a good dough consistency. Roll into walnut sized balls. May roll in Raw sugar in you want. Place on cookie sheet press down gently with hand to flatten. Alternately, flatten all of the dough together with a rolling pin on wax paper and use cookie cutters to make shapes such as stars. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes longer if you like crunchy Ginger Snaps. Let cool for 3-5 minutes before removing from pan to cooling rack.
