My husband loves Ginger Snap cookies! Mike’s grandma use to make them for family parties, they were one of her signature cookies. At least, they were Mike’s favorite, his cousins, might love another cookie that she would make. This cookie is full of flavor and it is so softy and chewy, it will make you feel like a kid, again!
