Don't you love a cookie exchange?  Today you are invited to come to a virtual cookie exchange with me and several other amazing bloggers!  So be sure to check out my cookies, and then some other great cookies from some fellow bloggers at the end of the post... but beware, you may want to eat cookies all day!

There is nothing better than a homemade cookie!  Today, I am going to share with you my AWARD WINNING recipe for Soft Gingersnaps, with here is the clincher... pumpkin pie dipping sauce!  These gingersnaps won the award for best cookie at a Cookie Exchange I went to a couple years ago, they are that good.  These cookies are light, crunchy on the outside and perfectly soft and delicious on the inside, and if that were not enough, you dip them into delicious pumpkin sauce!
