Ginger Snaps

Rachelle Teller


Molasses and gingersnap cookie, all in one. My grandmother always used to make these for us as kids.

Note: For more of a ginger taste, follow the recipe as shown. For more cinnamon taste, swap the amounts on the spices. Or add equal amounts (2 Tablespoons) of both for a more balanced cookie.
