    Aroostook's Note:

    The perfect cookie for a fall day! Crinkley on the top with a spicey snap when you bite into one. Bake a couple of dozen from this recipe and freeze the rest of the dough for when unexpected company visits. I love this cookies served with cold buttermilk =0 ... but you might want to drink apple cider with yours.

      My only complaint is that they weren't snappy like a ginger snap should be. However, they were delicious, and my friends devoured them. I used powdered egg replacer mixed with water and a butter substitute to make them vegan, and that worked fine. Next time I'll cook them for a little longer and make sure they're 100% cool before putting them away so they get nice and crispy. Thanks Aroostook!

      Everyone loved these cookies. They are pretty fool proof to make too. I substituted margarine for the shortning (had to add a little extra flour), but the recipe adapted beautifully!

      Delicious! I'm vegan so I used a powdered egg replacer and margarine, but the recipe still came out absolutely terrific! Much better than what you buy in the grocery store:)
