A soft, chewy cookie that tastes great!

Top Review by GondolaQueen

These cookies were very good- but maybe a bit misnamed. I didn't realize it until I'd already started, but these are gingerBREAD cookies. Gingersnap are thinner, lighter in colour and almost airy- not fluffy and soft. These are good gingerbread cookies though. I enjoyed eating these- as I searched for a true gingersnap recipe.
