Gingersnap cookies are wonderful cookies to have in the fall. Crunchy crisp gingersnap cookies go perfectly with a cup of hot tea.
This recipe has a wonderful tale. This recipe is from a wonderful lady that cooks very well. She is family, and she found CopyKat.com and was kind enough to send me some of her favorite recipes. The recipe comes from Sue A. Mertens Minick from Hazelwood, MO. She found this site on the internet! And yes, she is family 🙂
If you have never had these, these are a slightly spicy cookie that has a little punch to it. I love to serve these with Sharon’s Pumpkin Dip. That pumpkin dip is a cream cheese pumpkin dip that you are certain to love. It is flavorful, and it is almost like a pumpkin cheesecake without the work.
Homemade Ginger Snaps are Better Than Store Bought
Homemade Gingersnap cookies are so much tastier than store-bought cookies.
