  1. Oooo! I love gingersnaps! They remind me of Grandma Faye's kitchen. I'm making these tonight.

    By the way, at the ranch, we used to have this little pony, Ginger. She was about the same size as Me-too. She sometimes would get cranky and kick the other horses and we called that her "gingersnaps".
