After School Gingersnaps

These delicious gingersnap cookies are a great treat. The taste of molasses and ginger make a decidedly sweet tasting cookie. Have a batch of these ready when the children get home from school and watch their eyes light up. They are wonderful with a glass of cold milk to dunk them in. Kids love dunking cookies in their milk and these are perfect for that.

These are easy to make and will take just a little bit of time to make a good size batch. These also make great gifts to give to a friendly neighbor or shut in. Make a batch and place a half dozen in a gift tin or box for a great gift.

These also make excellent gingersnap ice cream cookie sandwiches. Just scoop a spoon of vanilla ice cream onto a cookie and top with another cookie. Freeze until serving time. Definitely a cool and delicious treat.
