In Response to Re: Gingersnap Cookies:
Hi  NANCY ; We both love ginger snap cookies.I am alergic to cinnamon & must avoid it. Kathy's recipe looks great, butuses lots of cinnamon.Yours also looks good but happily uses no cinnamon? Is that an eror? Did you frget to include cinnamon?   OR am I finally going to be able to make and enjoy gingersnaps w/ hubby once again? In Response to Re: Gingersnap Cookies :

Ann, I wondered about the amount of cinnamon in that recipe..1/3 Cup is a lot of cinnamon!  I think that in most cases you could omit the cinnamon with out a problem.  (Except if you were making something like Snickerdoodles) If you wanted to make up the, in most cases the teaspoon or so of spice, use a bit of ginger, nutmeg or other spice that is already in the recipe.  In some cases even finely ground pepper might work.

Hi Janice - welcome to VBB.  We hope you post some of your favorite recipes.

YIKES .... I finally went back to where I posted that gingersnap recipe and saw that I had left out the cinnamon.
I added it in bold face ......... Oh, I'm sorry!   I sure hope that not any/many people have tried that recipe.
I am so embarrased and so sorry.
That recipe does need 2 teaspoons cinnamon.
