My cousin shared my Grandmothers Gingersnap recipe with me earlier this year, and I am so excited to make if for the holidays this year! I thought you might enjoy it as well! Don't you just love making the recipes your parents and grandparents made? Handing them down through the generations? It's the simple things that really connect the heart to our ancestors isn't it? I sure miss my grandmother and this recipe just brings back memories of such a wonderful woman who blessed my life.
What recipes has your family handed down?
