So good! Don't know if they're supposed to flatten out, but ours didn't. We do live in Denver though. Hard to stop eating.
This is the most wonderful gingersnap recipe ever! My mom made this exact recipe every year when I was growing up. I am so glad to find the recipe again! This makes soft gingersnaps, not the hard ones like you buy in the store. (Although if you want them crispy, just let them sit out for a day!)
This is the best gingersnap recipe I have ever tried. I copied the recipe exactly for this first time. Next time I may increase the spices.
This is my favorite ginger snap cookie. I have been making it for years, don't know why I didn't review it before. It's soft and chewy, a very "full" cookie. Easy to make, and always a hit!
My husband loved these and isn't a fan of gingerbread. These were the first recipe that I've come across that didn't taste too much like molasses. We will be using these for gingerbread cookies come Christmas for sure.
These cookies are excellent and will definitely become a Christmas baking staple! The first time I made them, I followed the recipe exactly as printed. The cookies did not flatten out as illustrated, rather they remained in little balls and were quite chewy (just how I like them). I just made them again today, and I guess I was feeling impatient because I did not beat the ingredients, nor did I refrigerate for an hour. I just added all the ingredients together and stirred with a fork. This time, they flattened out like the picture, and were about 1/4 inch thick....still chewy but much flatter. I a pretty novice baker so maybe this is easily explained. Regardless...a great cookie!! I'm going to go eat one right now!
Delicious! Best gingersnap recipe I have ever made. I accidentally burnt the first batch, but the second batch worked out perfectly.
These were awesome! I made them quite small, like the ones that you get in the store. They turned out perfect. They were just a bit crunchy, with the right amount of spice.
