    Chef David Marion(alton brown wannabe)'s Note:

    My Grandma Marion always had gingersnap cookies ready for our visits during the fall. I recently found this recipe in Cook's Illustrated Magazine Nov-Dec '11and it made my mouth salivate. I've made this recipe many times with consistant results. I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
