Reviews for Dipped Gingersnaps
"I've been making those cookies for year. The addition of white chocolate totally blew me away.""
"My husband enjoys these spicy cookies with or without the coating"
"These are the best Ginger snaps I have ever made. My family is crazy about them. They like them without the dip but at Christmas i always dip them."
"How many cookie recipe has been posted?"
"These are always a favorite and requested often! I melt the chips in a mini crockpot and it works beautifully!"
"These have been a favorite for years and the recipe is always requested. I use white almond bark for the dipping and it works perfectly. (I melt in a double boiler, chocolate also works well.)"
"I didn't care for these at all. They tasted like their ingredients: oil and sugar, baked up crisp. They were not chewy at all, even though I kept them to the lower end of directions- 10 minutes. I disliked them so much that I tossed the 3 batches I baked and the remaining dough. I will look for a recipe that calls for some butter and brown sugar for more flavor and chewy softness. I cannot recommend these. Yuk."
"I have made these for many years and they are so good.The only problem I have is melting the white chips,,I have NEVER had luck with that process,,so at Christmas I rolled them in colored sugars for a more festive look.The recipe make a big batch.VERY delicious"
