This was my mother-in-law's recipe and my husband's favorite. Shorten or lengthen the cooking time for a softer or crisper cookie.

Gluten-Free Gingersnap Cookies

Rating: 5 stars 2
I decided to squeeze in one more holiday cookie recipe before the New Year! These gluten-free gingersnaps are the best cookie I've ever made, and I might even go as far to say my new favorite cookie of all time! They are made with nut and oat flours and pack a serious flavor punch, thanks to tons of spices and fresh ginger! When I think about the perfect cookie, I think crispy outside and soft inside. These are exactly that!

Chocolate Covered Gingersnaps

A variation on the famous chocolate mint cookies. Quick and easy to make and easy clean up! A freezing tray to rest the dipped cookies will keep the bottoms neat-looking.
