What to do with gingersnaps?

We got a box of ginger snaps hoping they'd taste good but I find they have way too much ginger in them. The ginger is so much for us that it's even spicey. I don't want to toss this $4 box of cookies. Can anyone suggest what to do with them to tone down the ginger and eat them, maybe in some other dessert? Thanks in advance.

One of the best things you can make with gingersnaps is Sauerbraten. If you don't have a recipe in a cookbook, then just Google "Sauerbraten recipe" and you'll find several good ones. I'm sure someone on this site has a good one too. I would give you mine but it's at home in Vegas and I'm not.

I've seen Mario Batali grate biscotti over ravioli -
so, what about grating ginger snaps over pumpkin or butternut filled ravioli?

Thanks for the great tips. I found a recipe for the roast you suggested DramaQueen and I will certainly use them in pumpkin pie crusts. Hmm?!...I bet even apple pie crust would work well with these little cookies.

I second using them as crust for cheesecake. It makes a nice contrast to the dense creamy texture of the cake; and if it's the spice of the cookie you dislike, the cheesecake cuts that down.
