Classic Gingersnap cookies always remind me of the holidays and spending time with family.  I baked a batch of these yummy cookies the evening my parents were arriving for a visit from Florida.  Gingersnaps are one of my Dad’s favorite cookies, and the aroma while baking filled the house with a spicy sweet warmth for their arrival.
