    Debber's Note:

    These are the ultimate Gingersnap cookie, thanks to the lemon juice. Snappy and sweety and chewy--all in one little cookie. Rolled in sugar, cracked top, loaded with flavor. Take 'em to the fair--you'll win a BLUE RIBBON!--cuz they turn out perfectly EVERY time!

      These biscuits were good, I used margarine instead of shortening, and half treacle half golden syrup as I didn't quite have enough. I added a bit more flour as the dough didn't seem quite thick enough, I thought because of the butter. They didn't really "snap"- they were crunchy around the edge but soft in the middle, I think if I'd cooked them a bit longer they would have crunched up. I'll definitely cook them again! (plus, my husband LOVED them!). Edited to add- I had these the next day and they were definitely crispy! Fantastic biscuits- I'm sorry I reviewed them so soon!

      Excellent gingersnap cookies! They go together very quickly and easily and are loaded with flavor. I halved the recipe and after tasting them, I wished I had made a full recipe. My family loved these and gave them 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this wonderful cookie is definitely a keeper!!
