Old-Fashioned Gingersnaps

Growing up, Gingersnap Cookies were always a favorite in our house. They were not homemade but I still loved them. But one year my daughter and I had to go and bake some at a Christmas open house. The smell was so yummy as it filled every room. They are so nostalgic and bring back so many childhood memories.
