Picture of Gmas Grumpy Gingersnaps
These ginger snaps are no ordinary ginger snaps.  My great grandmother made these when ever my grandfather(her son) was grumpy.  She made him watch as she made them and joked around the whole time making him happier. So that's the story now lets make some snaps.

Surely your great-grandmother didn't use shortening in the original recipe. Do you know if she used butter or lard?

Very good!  I added about 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves to make them a little spicier.
