    Vyrianna's Note:

    I received this recipe from the Prescott Journal which actually called them "Nona's World Famous Ginger Snaps". I found some Molasses Krinkles recipes that had the same ingredients but different baking instructions. Since I won't be keeping the paper and do want to try this recipe I'm posting it here. (By the way 4 tablespoons is equal to 1/4 cup)

      These cookies are great! They are not the easiest cookie to work with, but I think they were worth it. I used a square of plastic wrap in my hand to help shape the crumbly dough together, and it worked much better than me bare hand. Much better than store bought ginger snaps. Excellent with pumpkin cheesecake dip.

      These turned out great! I was really hesitant on the batter turning out extremely crumbly, but the cookied turned out surprisingly great: crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. :)

      These are outstanding!! They are crispy and light. I used 1 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour plus 1 cup of white flour. They turned out just scrumptious and made my whole house smell amazing! No one even knows they are made from whole wheat flour. And ginger is known for so many health benefits! These are wonderful!!!!
