I was pleasantly suprised. These are christmas....Even for people who may not particularly care for gingersnaps... end result is just a mild flavor and outstanding! I lined the pan with parchment overlap to help remove the entire block after cooling to make cutting easier,(still greased paper) and, I sprinkled the MM's after 12 min.baking time so they maintained their shapes. I also poured the ENTIRE can slowly over the entire cookie (instead of just the base cookie), as I wanted that flavor to be thru & thru.... definately a do over!!
