Ginger Snap Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 6)
Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2003
I couldn't find crystallized ginger in the local grocery store, so following one of the earlier reviews, I skipped the crystallized ginger and added extra fresh ginger (THANKS FOR THE ADVICE!). To reduce to amount of fat, I used 1 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of applesauce, I don't think this changes the taste very much, 'coz it's still excellent. I extended the baking time to 15 mins though since I find 10 mins baking leave the cookies too chewy. Thanks for the recipe!!

These were very good. If you like ginger they are the cookie for you. I did find however that they were quite soft (no snap). I will try to decrease the flour a bit next time to get that snap.

Crystallized ginger is expensive, I first made these for a Christmas cookie exchange and didn't want to go to the expense of the crystallized ginger, so feel free to leave it out, it is "non-essential", don't skimp on the powdered or fresh ginger to give them a nice "snap" and decorate with a confectioner's sugar (a little water and white confectioner's suger to a pasty consistency)piped on in stars, swirls or whatever suits you...they were a hit! (Ginger tends to be an adult taste but kids like em too!)

I was so surprised to find this recipe soooo delicious. They lasted only a few days in the house. I especially loved the chewiness of the recipe, not the hardness which usually is the typical "ginger crisp." I agree with another reviewer that this will become one of my regular cookies to bake. So different than the "toll house" types. Highly recommended!

I added 1 tsp of ground cloves and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to this recipe. It was the first time that I'd made ginger snap cookies & these turned out fantastic! YUM!

These are terrific. Buttery with each little bite full of candied ginger. I'm putting this in my permanent collection.

If you love ginger, these are the cookies for you! They give you the full, spicy bite of ginger by using it in all three forms. I had to cook them a little longer than instructed to get them to the crispy "snap" stage, but they are equally good if you make them chewy.
