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).
2 C. Flour
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Cloves
1 tsp. Ginger
1 tsp. Cinnamon
¾ C Butter or Margarine
1 C Sugar
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.
