Mom's Ginger Cookies

These are the best soft, chewy, gingeriest cookies. Yum! This makes a biiiig batch...I usually make half (or 1/3 might be easier based on the measurements). For the bread flour, if you don't have a scale, it might be easiest to buy it in the bulk section and weigh it on their scale. You could also use all-purpose flour, it's just not quite as chewy.
