Old English Gingersnaps
Comment on this recipe
These make great Christmas cookies. I started making them Christmas 1985. They are so good.
1 cup flour
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
5 tablespoons dark or light corn syrup
Cut flour and butter together with a pastry blender until crumbly. Add the brown sugar and ginger. Stir in syrup to make stiff dough. Pinch off marble-size pieces of dough and place far apart on well-greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until done. Cookies will be thin and lacy when done. Makes about 10 dozen cookies.
