“I looked over a few Snap recipes but didn't notice one exactly like this one. I didn't begin to like these until I was older, really were there any other cookies besides chocolate chip?:) I made these for work, both like this and a batch where I added 3T of cocoa powder to the flour. The Snap lovers devoured these. The recipe calls for black pepper and I think that really complements the spiciness of the ginger. They are almost a little "hot" tasting. Hope someone tries this one and likes it.”
