Fall Bliss

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the colors, the smells, the temperatures, the fashion, and the food.  I’m not typically an “outdoorsy” person except for during fall.  I love going for walks through crunchy leaves whilst drinking a warm beverage (like chai or cider).  Yesterday morning, I took a warm mug of coffee and my Bible to my front porch, and had a sweet time of rest and focus.

We’re only a few days into fall and I’ve already spent more time outside, broken out my scarves, and made gingersnaps.  Gingersnaps are my all-time favorite fall food so I thought I’d share the recipe with you. (c/o my college roommate’s mom, Candy).

GINGERSNAPS

 2 C. Flour

2 tsp. Baking Soda

1 tsp. Cloves

1 tsp. Ginger

1 tsp. Cinnamon

¾ C Butter or Margarine

1 C Sugar

1 Egg

¼ C Molasses

Combine dry ingredients.  Cream Butter and Sugar.  Add Egg and Molasses.  Beat well.  Gradually stir in dry ingredients.

Chill 4 hours or until dough is firm enough to shape. Shape into 1” balls.  Roll in Sugar.  Place balls 2” apart on Greased Baking Sheets.

Bake 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes.

What are your favorite fall things?  Can you share your favorite fall recipe?
