Gingersnaps with Lemon Sugar

IMG_2993I love a good gingersnap, and these Gingersnaps with Lemon Sugar didn’t disappoint. They are easy to throw together and fairly forgiving. I love the sugar coating creating a nice crunchy exterior, but the lemon flavor didn’t really come through for me. I think I’d either skip or double the zest next time, but the overall cookie recipe is excellent.

Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

These Brown Butter Snickerdoodles are so good, I had to immediately pack them up and put them in my car, so that I would actually have a few left to take to the party that I made them for.  Seriously, I have not crushed so hard on a cookie in a long time. This cookie is cool fall breezes, hot apple cider after apple picking, it is the first pumpkin carved for Halloween. It is delicious. These cookies are so good I want to write oodles of bad poetry to the hallowed combination of butter, cinnamon and sugar.  These cookies are so good they make me sound like an overwrought Hallmark greeting card.

Did I even like snickerdoodles before today? Have I ever had one like this? I thought that snickerdoodles were dry, crumbly, flavorless, bland biscuits, so far below chocolate chip on my list of acceptable cookies that I usually skip them if offered one.  But these though, are a revelation of all of the goodness that comes from a well made snickerdoodle.

IMG_2770This has been fun, but please excuse me while I go grab a cookie out of the trunk of my car. I may have to have my husband hide these someplace where I won’t find them. Like the next state over.
