Grandma's Ginger Snaps

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Stacey Dee

An old family favorite out of my grandmother's recipe book. I haven't made this recipe yet myself, but a reviewer suggests to add more spice :) they used 1.5 times the amount stated. Enjoy!

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.
