Yummy! Used to sell these to raise money for the Humane Society. They are soft and sweet. They taste like the ginger cookies at Starbucks except better. My grandmother's recipe.

I've baked these cookies half a dozen times now and they are always a huge hit at work. People rave about how flavorful they are. I love how they are slightly crispy on the outside once cooled but have a soft and tender center. Best ginger cookies EVER! 5 Snaps up! ?

Its not Christmas without these Gingersnaps (and the shortbread that comes with them!) Soft and chewy as the title suggests. A delicious way to expand your waist this Christmas!
