Dieter's Demize offers these treats as Dieterís Dozens (6-units as minimum and 6-unit increments.)
These cookies originated in Marblehead, MA in the late 18th century. Unlike ultra-crispy gingersnaps, molasses and rum help them stay soft and chewy for a long time. They were extremely popular not only with local residents, but with sailors heading out to sea. The popularity continues today.
