Ginger Snaps

On Saturday morning when I was catching up on visiting blogs I saw the cookies that Lorrie made with a recipe she posted. Lorrie’s blog is called Fabric Paper Thread. I checked my cupboards and was pleased to see I had all the ingredients I needed for the recipe. Dear and I enjoyed the finished product. When  Josh and Laura were here on Sunday they enjoyed them, too. Click over to Lorrie’s to see the recipe.  I put mine too close to each other on the cookie sheet. They still taste great! Lorrie’s look perfect!

Lorrie describes them well, “I like them because they are assertively ginger-flavoured and are crisp and snappy, but can soften to chewiness over time.”

Happy Monday to you.

The first time I made them was for a wedding shower for our daughter Katie.

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.
