These were a big hit at a jewelry party I went to. I served them with Pumpkin Pie Dip (delicious) I only had egg substitute on hand so I used that and they turned out great! I also added fresh ground pepper about 12 small grinds. Chilled for a bit, rolled out thin (didn't want soft), used a small round cookie cutter and sprinkled tops with sugar. I baked about 8-9 min. Perfect. Thanks

These were great, I was at a party and tried them. My friend told me she found the recipe on here (we trade recipes from here all the time!) so she forwarded it to me! Yum!

Excellent! I had a craving for ginger snaps, but had never made them before. This recipe really hit the spot!
