Jo possesses the mad skill of seeing both sides to any situation. While that helps her be a peace maker, it can also frustrate the stew out of her husband!
We are very pleased that Jo is bringing scrumptious gingersnaps to the Coop and here's the recipe. Thanks, Jo!
Nothing smells quite as wonderful as Gingersnaps hot from the oven!

2 ¼ Cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ginger,
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
