Ginger Snap Cookies

Gluten Free Gingersnaps

When I was a child, my grandmother used to make at least 10 different types of cookies around the holidays. Ginger Snaps was a family favorite and they would be the first cookies missing from the tray. It's the distinct molasses taste that puts the "snap" into this recipe. Make these cookies an instant family favorite this season! Package these treats as gifts to friends, family, and neighbors. Happy Holidays from our family to yours!

thanks, these look soooooo yum

I am addicted to Trader Joe's for store bought, especially because they have additional tiny chewy pieces of ginger in them

I look forward to trying these!
