    Everyone in my family loves these. Dad keeps asking me to make them and send them over. Great ginger and molasses flavour.

      These soft gingersnaps are exactly the cookie I have been looking for! They're very easy to make, and the dough keeps well in the fridge for a day or so if you don't want to make the whole batch at once. I baked them (one-inch balls) for exactly 10 minutes -- they look like they're not done when you take them off the pan, but they firm up quickly so, if you want a soft cookie, don't bake them any longer. Absolutely delicious, LeeAnn!
