I have been having a real craving for gingersnaps lately. I made five batches for Christmas, and I am still in the mood for them - they are just sooo good. One of my friends said these were the best gingersnaps she had ever had. How 'bout that, eh? NOTE: it is important to use pastry flour for these cookies, otherwise the dough will be strange and unworkable. I tried a batch using supposedly "all-purpose" whole wheat flour (but it was really formulated for bread) and ended up throwing out the dough because it just didn't work. You can use all whole wheat flour, or all white flour, just so long as it is soft.
