Gingersnap Cookies

Gingersnap is the hard cookies flavoured with ground ginger and some other spices and molasses. In most of the countries, these biscuits are called ginger nuts while in the states the name pronounced is ginger snaps.

The aroma of ginger and the spices is just out of the world when the cookies are baking in the oven. These cookies have a very rich intense flavour because of the dark molasses.The cookies stay fresh for a week at room temperature and might up to a month in the freezer.So the first week of Bake around the world is finished and so are my first-week theme cookies. Stay tuned t catch up with my second week’s baking recipes.
