This is a recipe that I found in an old magazine, and thought that the Ginger Snap cookies made an interesting flavor, I made the recipe and we all agreed that it was a very good recipe. The best thing is it is easy and quick, I get the Ginger Snaps at the dollar store, and that makes for an economical side dish that taste great.I make another recipe using Ginger snaps called Sauerbraten Burgers which is also very good, I will post the recipe soon, which is why I wanted to make this one. They are both family approved.I have been making it for about 5 years now.I added a few extra ingredients.
