Holiday Flavors: Gingersnap Cookies

This holiday cookie is currently the favorite cookie of my household.  My toddler cannot get enough of these crispy, yet chewy gingersnaps. The recipe is great to make with your little kitchen helper, simply pour and mix the ingredients with your hand mixer, roll in sugar and bake.  When I started researching gingersnap recipes I found that many are for 3-5 dozen cookies, which I didn’t need.  (The recipe below makes 12 cookies)  I also discovered that the cookie made with shortening, not butter, and bakes for 15 minutes, not 12 minutes, results in a crisp cookie.   I have made these cookies three times since the first batch and they are definitely adult and toddler approved.  A classic cookie and a new family tradition has been made.  Happy Holiday!
