CHRISTMAS COOKIES - Mom's Ginger Snap Cookies

Today I am sharing my FAVORITE COOKIE OF ALL TIME with you. These cookies were a tradition in my house for the holidays and every special occasion. The smells as they were mixed and baked are definitely Christmas smells, the spices of the ginger, clove and cinnamon are very much reminiscent of warm kitchens and holiday baking marathons.

For some reason it took me almost ten years to finally get this recipe right. Mom's recipe book was nearly 60 years old and faded and I couldn't read the amount of flour! Finally, one day I got it right - I cannot tell you how overjoyed I was - to think I would never taste these cookies again actually made me cry every time I failed. Silly yes, but these cookies were not only my favorite cookies to eat they were also a large part of cooking with my Mom.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present my Mom's Ginger Snap Cookies all dressed up for Christmas:

Don't ever say I never gave you anything - this is a treasure of a recipe. Merry Christmas from me to you and let me know how they go over!

  1. Mmm. Sounds good, actually. We're baking gingerbread here for #2's birthday party. They're making houses and yes, I think I'm nuts for undertaking this!

  2. I never make gingerbread houses - all that work and they end up too stale to eat - I made a gingerbread house out of foamcore made to look like gingerbread - it's lasted for 20 years now, lol.

    Then I make gingerbread and these cookies to eat - fresh out of the oven is the best!
