Ingredients for GingerSnap Cookies: Method
First I got introduced to "SHF" event by Ruth of "once upon a feast".That month theme was "Ginger".After searching on net i came across with lot of recipes like Gingersnap cookies,Ginger bread etc.But i held up with some work at that time and i ended up with Ginger peanut bars for that entry.I made this dessert after reffering from Pillsbury magazine and changed "APRICOT" instead of "CHOCOLATE".
