I was following my mother's recipe for ginger snaps and realized I had used the wrong ingredients right away, so rather than throwing it out and starting over, I made my own recipe, and they turned out even better. I just had to share my 'mistake' with you all because I can't believe how good these are. They turned out so delicious, moist, and chewy. I hope you enjoy them.

Very tasty, and a healthier choice than most cookies as they are lower in fat and calories than a lot of the others. When you're watching your waistline or on a lowfat diet, that really counts! :)

CHEF JOHN'S GINGERSNAP COOKIES
The amazing spicy-sweet flavor and irresistible texture of these cookies will please even a non-cookie eater like me. You can adjust the spices to suit your tastes but remember, they're called 'snaps' for reasons other than texture!
