    Toadflax's Note:

    I have made these for years; for awhile I sold baking to earn a little money. People loved these and thought I had some secret recipe - in truth this recipe is in several cookbooks that I own. I didn't see it posted here and hope it isn't a duplication.

      I was looking for a gingersnap recipe that would taste like the cookies I used to get as a kid with my school lunch. Not exactly the same, but tasty nonetheless! I did find that the dough needs to be chilled before forming balls, had a heck of time with the first batch, refrigerated for about 30 minutes and went back and completed the next three with no stickiness. My first batch was devoured by me 3 kids before I even put the second batch in! Did some without rolling in sugar and some with... we prefer it with.

      Yum!! These were a light crunchy cookie. Due to the high content of sugar in the cookie I didn't roll them in extra before baking and I substituted Golden Syrup for the Molasses. Thanks for sharing!
