These cookies were always my favorite after-school treat. I could hardly wait to get home for my snack of gingersnaps and a tall glass of milk. Whenever I think of that special snack, I recall the warmth of home filled with the spicy aroma of ginger!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 5, 2011

"Dough is very soft. Difficult to roll out. Relatively tasteless once baked. Definitely need more than 'lightly' floured surface."
