I really don't know how long to prepare these. I got the recipe from an old old cook book 1940"s. It's the only ginger snap recipe I use. Hope you all enjoy. Myrna2

This really is the best Gingersnap recipe ever. Once I made it (while slightly hung over, I admit) and accidentally used curry powder instead of ground ginger. I don't recommend doing that.. but if you follow the recipe, you'll have great success. If you're paying better attention than I was, following this recipe is a (ginger)snap!
