    Kandake's Note:

    I love these gingersnaps. They don't include any egg, and a very small amount of margarine, so they are lower in fat and cholesterol than most other gingersnap recipes I've tried. I also like that they are drop cookies. Besides cutting the prep time by removing the necessity of chilling before baking, this also makes for a lot less mess on your hands. It also feels nice to sneak a bit more fruit into the family's diet. The end result is a big, light, crispy-outside, chewy-inside "snappy" snap that is great with coffee, cocoa, or milk, and travels well. They are also sturdy enough to sandwich together - you might try with a light cream cheese frosting, or even vanilla ice cream, between two cookies for a kid-pleasing treat.

      I LOVED these! And so did everyone else that I shared with. I did make a few alterations. I used homemade apple butter instead of sauce. And then cut the sugar back by half a cup. I left the rest of the recipe the same. These are SO amazingly good. They came out with a great texture. The edges were crunchy but the rest of it was chewy. Simply perfect! I will make these again and again!

      Finally, a cookie that I can make for my "allergy bunch". Between my child and her two friends, there is an egg, a dairy, and a nut allergy. This cookie, when made with Fleischman's unsalted margerine, is safe for all three and is also extremely tasty. I added 2 tsp. of cocoa powder to add a hint of chocolate flavor and I was pleased with the results.
