Ginger Snaps

I am not sure what is better – the taste of these cookies or the aroma in your kitchen while these are baking. Both are divine. Ginger Snaps are one of my favorite cookies. Perfect anytime of day, delicious with coffee or milk. Brings back memories every time I bake these of growing up and my mom baking these cookies.
