Traditional Ginger Snaps

Traditional Ginger Snaps

These cookies will become your annual holiday (or winter) favorite. They mix quickly and are pretty versatile in that you can simply roll in sugar, or roll in colored sugar, or roll in pretty sprinkles whether they be green and red for the holidays or a simple white like I did.

Looking festive is one thing but in the end, it’s all about taste. And these are packed with wonderful ginger snap flavors from the molasses, ginger, cloves, and cinammon. Your kitchen will smell delightful while you’re baking these! Try a batch today!
