Cookie Jar Gingersnaps
“My grandma kept two cookie jars in her pantry. One of the jars, which I now have, always had these crisp and chewy gingersnaps in it. They’re still my favorite cookie recipe. My daughter, Becky, used this recipe for a 4-H fair and won a blue ribbon.” —Deb Handy, Pomona, Kansas

Test Kitchen Tips
- Because shortening melts at a higher temperature than butter, it’s useful for baking cookies that you want to have a nice uniform shape.
- For easy cleanup, spritz the measuring cup with a little cooking spray before measuring sticky ingredients like honey and molasses.
