Picture is deceiving. You do not get that rich dark color, due to the omission of molasses? The bake time is also incorrect. My baking time was 18 minutes.

flavor was satisfactory. Not good enough to make again.

Ginger snap cookies are being used in so many ways, make a pie crust, or the bottom of a deliciously rich cheesecake, or just eat it directly as a snack.

Nobody can never feel bored of eating these sweets, soft in the inside, and crispy on the outside. The sugar coating make these cookies look even more appealing.

Of course they have been always one of the classic Christmas cookies as well.

The sugar needs to be brown sugar not white to get the colour you require
