Seriously? Apparently he can’t eat cookies and have a conversation at the same time. Although I can’t really blame him. These cookies are so dang good, you can get through half a batch in one sitting. Every time I gorge myself on cookies I remember our friend Mark back in Indiana. He and his wife are the super-healthy type (we call them granolas). One time we had them over for dinner. I busted out the dessert after we had eaten, and offered Mark some of whatever it was. He said no, he couldn’t possibly, he had been eating cookies all day. Finding this hard to believe, I asked him just how many he had eaten. “Two!!” he said, in a can-you-believe-it voice. Eric and I have never let him live it down.
I love the taste of gingersnaps, but hate the fact that they snap. I always prefer soft cookies. So this recipe is the perfect solution. If you like your cookies snappy, just bake them a little longer.
UPDATE: I finally snagged my husband’s great-grandmother’s original Gingersnap recipe. I’ve come around to enjoying the SNAP part of gingersnaps…with lots of milk :)
