Though they are crispier than classic gingerbread cookies, ginger snaps are made with many of the same ingredients and boast a warm, spicy flavor, just like their chewy counterparts. To balance the sweetness of his cookies, Alton uses both fresh and candied ginger with fragrant ground spices. When you take the cookies out of the oven, add a light dusting of “snow” to them by sprinkling each with a bit of sanding sugar.
