Growing up my mother never bought pre-made cookies or cookie dough from the grocery store; however, she would throw on her apron and whip up a batch of homemade cookies pretty frequently. I loved the process of baking, getting to choose one of the handmade aprons my grandmother made, and the smell of the kitchen as the cookies baked in the oven. I learned how to make muffins and quick bread before I ever knew how to boil water or make macaroni. For some, kitchen staples are things like tomato sauce and pasta, but in our house, we never run out of flour, sugar, and butter. A rainy day can be solved with a batch of cookies, a frown can turn into a smile, and a lazy afternoon is given purpose.
This year, I decided to whip up my husbands favorite - Ginger Snaps. My mom and I made these together growing up, and his grandmother made them frequently too. I thought one batch might get us through the holidays; however, I've already made them four times. Take a bite, tell me what you think :)
