These were perfect gingersnaps, especially with a cup of tea! Even the raw dough tasted good! The dough was easy to handle so forming the cookies went very quickly. I made them yesterday, but I doubt that they will last very long. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent cookies! Crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside. Exactly how gingersnaps should be!

These were spectacular! I made these for a cookie swap and even though they were so simple, they were a big hit. I'll be making them again today for my favorite toddlers. A crispy outside and a chewy inside.
