Traditional Ginger Snaps

At work every year before Christmas we have a "grazing" table where we all sign up to bring munchies to share with everyone else.  The guy who sits behind me requests Ginger Snaps every year.  They are his favorite.  One of my other cubemates stated to me on Thursday (the day I bought them to work) that he didn't even like Ginger Snaps but had eaten 8 so far and ate his 9th in front of me as we chatted.  They are delicious and I have to say it's a good recipe.  Your family and friends will enjoy them as well.  As always, Bon Appétit!
