Ginger Snaps have been my favorite cookie since I was a kid so when I came across this recipe I was elated. This is such a simple, no-fuss recipe that I had everything on hand plus I had some crystalized ginger in my pantry that I decided to chop and add to the top. They turned out perfect! This recipe produces a cookie with just the right amount of crunch, the perfect amount of spice and everything that makes a Ginger Snap pure heaven. When these were finished baking, I brewed a cup of Orange Pekoe Tea to have with them and realized that it's true when they say, "The simplest things are always the best."
