I made gingersnaps last week, since I thought I would test out a new recipe and get a head start on the holiday baking at the same time. I found the recipe at the Joy of Baking.
Thoughts On The Recipe: My only “problem” with this recipe was the fact that the dough was really sticky, even after chilling it in the fridge for around 30 minutes. I ended up sticking it in the freezer for another 30 minutes, and while each batch was baking, I put it back in the freezer.
Next time, I think I would make it a couple days earlier then when I really need it, just to make sure it has enough time to chill.
Other than that, they were fairly easy to make. Another plus is that it makes a lot of cookies, so some can be frozen and the rest can go into the cookie jar!
They were really yummy, and when I tested the cookies, the edges were chewy and crispy, with a soft center. I don’t know if they become more crispy upon cooling off completely, but I’ll find out when I pull them out of the freezer.
