    This is an awesome ginger snap recipe. I couldn't find my recipe, so I went online to search for one, and found your site - the picture is what did it - I had to try them. I didn't even add the crystallized ginger as I didn't have any, and these are delicious. Crispy on the outside, slightly chewy in the middle and full of good spicy flavor. I love them.
