Ginger snaps are one of my favourite types of cookie, and one of the first things I remember baking with my mom. When I was really young we had a little green stool that I would stand on when we would bake together, this way I could reach the counter and "help" (which I'm sure often turned into me eating cookie dough while she baked). I vividly remember standing on that stool and rolling ginger snaps in sugar, the smell of ginger and molasses mingling in our kitchen, creating a heavenly aroma.
I love my ginger snaps big and soft! I prefer their snap to come from the spices rather than their texture.
A fork works perfectly for pressing the cookie down, and adds a pretty design on top.
