Jan’s Baking Notes:
We made a few batches before we got the timing down pat. We would take them out just a little too late and they would end up a bit too overcooked and crispy. The real beauty of these gems is that they’re chewy and soft! Anyone can buy a hard ginger snap, right? A lot depends on your oven and whether or not you’re using convection or conventional bake. The good news is they’re tasty even when they’re a little bit overcooked. But they’re magnificent if you can get the timing just right—and take them out of the oven just slightly underdone. Watch for the cracks on top.
Then, keep them in an airtight container or bag to keep them soft.
