On Saturday, my sister-in-law made Gingersnaps. I didn't know it at the time, my brother told us about it on Sunday but didn't bring us any to share! So I went home and made my own batch of Gingersnaps later than evening. (And then my mom made Gingersnaps on Monday).
Since I don't particularly have a Gingersnap recipe, I searched online and found Smitten Kitchen's recipe. Since her stuff is always delicious, I decided to just use it instead of searching anymore.
I baked my cookies for about 11-12 minutes and they were just right. A little crisp on the edges but nice and chewy in the middle. Justin thought they were too crisp (he likes gooey almost under-baked cookies). I thought they were great. However, my tongue started getting tingly after having a few. Not sure if it was because of the white pepper or the fancy (expensive) ground ginger that I used. My mom didn't use white pepper in hers because she didn't have any and her's weren't quite as spicy. But she also used a different brand of ground ginger. So who knows.
I was playing with my cookies and different ways to take pictures of them and ended up with them all piled up and framed it so the stack would be on the far right of the picture...then I did this in photoshop:
Kind of fun. I think this would be fun with a recipe you are particularly known for to include in a scrapbook. Or to just use as a recipe card - print as a 6x4 and you have a pretty & functional recipe card. I just stacked them on a cloth napkin on my counter and then balanced a piece of white foam board against the cabinets behind it.
