“I made up this recipe from a compilation of recipes that I found-all trying to come to a final product that resembled the old-fashioned gingersnaps that come in a brown-colored bag and I love so much... Super spicy, crisp and crunchy, these are a real treat but not a guilty treat! Unlike most recipes for gingersnaps that call for butter, this stays true to the old fashioned recipe that only uses oil. I also use Splenda for half the sugar (that halves the guilt too(-;) Enjoy!”
