It doesn't get any easier than this! With a double snap of ginger, these dark, soft, chewy cookies keep well and freeze well. (You wouldn't guess that these are a drop cookie.) =)

We found the batter to be wonderful! we agree that the flour took a while to mix in. The taste was very bland. If you enjoy cake-like cookies that are not very strong in flavor, this works.

These cookies were very easy to make and they smell great coming out of the oven! The only hard part was mixing in all that flour; I ended up only using 3 1/4 cups because the batter was very thick. I was disappointed with the dry texture of the cookie. I recall ginger snaps being more moist, so next time I think I'll use even less flour!
