This recipe has a wonderful tale. This recipe is from a nice 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 🙂

Ginger Snaps

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 for ginger snaps. Her dip is one that you are certain to love. It is flavorful and almost like a pumpkin cheesecake without the work.
