Ginger Snaps Recipe

Step 1

Mix ingredients until well blended.

Step 2

Form dough into 3/4-inch balls.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Step 4

Bake on a greased cookie sheet for about 12 minutes.

Step 5

As the ball melts down during baking, the cookie develops the characteristic crinkled surface.

NOTE: A topping to delight the kids is 1/2 a marshmallow, cut side down, on the almost baked cookies. Return to oven about 4 minutes. When cool, ice to taste.

This makes 10 dozen, 2-inch cookies.

If you dunk these in coffee...don't drink the coffee..
