Sparkling Ginger Snaps

Oh...my....HEAVENS! These have to be one of my favorite cookies! That would be the reason I seldom make them. When I do, I really want to eat them ALL! But when I asked my husband today what he wanted me to bake, his response was "nothing chocolate". Why? Nobody knows, however it doesn't matter, because it gave me the PeRfEcT excuse to make these scrumptious little circles of sugary and spicy deliciousness. Yummy! These cookies will tend to get a little crunchy, so the best tip to keep them soft and chewy is to keep them stored in an airtight container with a half slice of bread with them. The moisture from the bread will keep the cookies moist! I never have to worry much about this because they're gone long before they'd ever get crunchy!
