These turned out great! The only reason I'm giving them 4 stars is because the directions were not super clear and I had to add an additional cup of flour. I creamed the sugar and shortening, then add the egg before adding the dry ingredients. I also doubled the spice and would do that again. Baked mine for 11 minutes. Thanks for this yummy recipe, I'll be making these again.
Very good cookie. I used all of the ingredients and of course had to use more sugar to roll the balls after forming into balls. One note though for anyone wanting more spice to the Ginger Snaps..... use 1 1/2 times the spice up to 2 times. I did 1 1/2 times and they we AWESOME!!!! My wife and I love a good spicy cookie and that was a perfect blend. Thanks for posting your recipe!
