Oatmeal Gingersnaps

Joseph and Joyanna

"Chewy, tender cookies that disappear before you know it, these gingersnaps are not the hard disks you may recognize. The quick-cooking oatmeal adds moisture and chewiness, as well as a hint of healthiness to this rich snack. Recipe by our mom, Patricia Eisenberg."
