It won’t be long before we’ll all be baking for Christmas. A cookie that I make nearly every Christmas is a Gingersnap whose recipe I got from a friend back in 2003.
I’d like to call this the best ever Gingersnap cookie, but my grandmother baked those and I don’t have her recipe, so I’ll call these Really Good Gingersnaps. They really are good. So good that I have trouble eating just one.
I’m sharing my Really Good Gingersnaps as part of Cookie Week hosted by Maryann of Domestically Speaking. You’ll find links to all of the cookies shared this week at the end of this post.
Really Good Gingersnaps
I love making this gingersnap cookie every year at Christmas. Gingersnaps are good any time, but for some reason I think of them as a Christmas cookie, probably because they were one of many cookies that my grandmother shared with us each year at Christmas.
My neighborhood has a wonderful tradition at Christmas. We make plates of cookies for each other and deliver them to each house.
To make the cookies uniform in size, I use a 1″ cookie scoop.
If you want to make a larger cookie, use a larger cookie scoop and bake them a tad bit longer.
