Ginger Crackles!

My Grama is an amazing cook, baker, and canned goods maker!!

In honor of Thanksgiving, I'm posting her acclaimed Ginger Crackles.
Perfect for Thanksgiving dessert with tea or coffee, (and a piece of pie).
Oh and Grama, I hope this wasn't a secret family recipe because I am posting it for the world to see!
