This easy ginger snap cookie recipe, aka Gewürz-Plätzchen, has been a family favorite for years. It's one I made with my kids when there were young - easy and fun to make. It's like a molasses cookie recipe but more gingery. This is one of those cookies that Omas love to make with their grandkids.
These ginger snaps may just become your best cookie recipe, one you'll make all the time.
This is one of those easy recipes for kids to help with.
I particularly like bringing math into any baking I do with my granddaughters. Either we half the recipe or double it. In this case, we may just half it because the whole recipe makes lots. With 7 - 8 dozen, there's lots to share.
Because of that, it's a great one to learn division with. Makes it fun to calculate 1/2 of 3/4 cups molasses, but we even have fun with that!th cook
It's also fun to try to find just the right glass to flatten the dough. I'll go through several crystal glasses and sugar bowls and dessert bowls to find just the right one that will leave a pretty impression on the cookie.
