A chose this over other gingersnap recipes because frankly, every one of Ratherbeswimmin's recipes I have tried, are excellent. This one is no different. Very easy too! Not sure how crispy they will be because I tasted straight from the oven. Wonderful cookie, not too sweet and being the impatient baker that I am, I love that I don't have to wait for butter to soften! Thanks for posting!

These cookies were so wonderful. I made them during Christmas. Intense smell while baking. Very tender and soft in the middle. Wonderful ginger-molasses flavor Not only did my family enjoy them, but we put them on a plate for Santa. They were all gone on Christmas morning so he must have liked them too. Thanks Nurse Di.

DELICIOUS!!! I made 2 double batches! I will be including these in my goodies bag to pass out as Christmas gifts. I followed the recipe exactly. On my 2nd batch I did add an extra tsp. of ginger! I thought the extra tsp gave it just the right spice for my taste buds and everyone else liked them as well. A delicious spice and crunch. Dunk them in your coffee! Yum Yum! Thanks for sharing!

Really good! I have only had store bought gingersnaps, and I'm not a big fan. I made these to go with the pumpkin pie dip, and they are really good. Even my gingersnap hating husband enjoyed these. I am taking them to a football party with the dip tomorrow :)

Miam ! first batch was flat, probably because i worked the dough to much and it was too hot, but the flavor is incredible, and i like the way they are so chewy ! my mum is gonna adore them, thank you very much.

Because a friend doesn't like molasses I used light corn syrup instead and they turned out fantastic!! Also recommend putting it in the fridge for 15 minutes to let the dough set--- very yummy

Perfect gingersnap recipe. They were very soft in the center, the way a gingersnap should be. Very quick and easy to make, and SOOO good! I didn't change the recipe at all. I'll definetely make these again.

Just took these out of the oven and had to try one while they were still warm. Oh my goodness!! A little taste of heaven. Very tender and soft. Great gingery flavor. Smells wonderful too. Thanks Nurse Di, for another great recipe.
