Cheeseburger Pie

Cheeseburger Pie

Cheeseburger Pie is a funky, yet fun take on an American classic. This recipe takes a tasty American staple food, the cheeseburger, and makes all that great grilling taste accessible, year-round. There is nothing more synonymous with American food than a good, old-fashioned, traditional cheeseburger. […]

Creamy Tomato Soup

Creamy Tomato Soup

  Throughout my foodie adventures, one of my favorite foods, to either cook in my kitchen or order at a restaurant, is soup. Do you love soup? I adore a really good soup. I consider myself a soup aficionado, more over, a creamy soup expert. […]

  Gardening. Do you love gardening? Are you good at it? What kinds of food and/or flowers do you cultivate? In my head, I am a great gardener. A true green thumb. In reality, I kill pretty much everything I try to grow. From herbs […]

Here I am, it’s Monday night and I’m sitting on my couch, watching the season finale of Bachelorette (you know you watch it too). I should be relaxing, thinking about about all things Bachelorette such as who’s going to be picked, who will get out […]

It’s August, which for some reason, seems to set off an internal alarm clock, when I suddenly start longing for all things Fall: pumpkins, lightweight sweaters, football, butternut squash, apples, Halloween and cool, crisp weather. This alarm clock seems to go off at this time […]

Tomorrow is the last day of July. That means August has just about arrived, knocking at our front door, begging to come in and stay awhile. This summer has flown by and somehow, I knew this would happen. There are so many fun things to […]

Gingersnap Cookies

Gingersnap Cookies

Warm and chewy Gingersnap Cookies

Happy July! We are officially in the throws of a hot summer.  And with that, it’s National Gingersnap Day!!! Did you that?  What more could you ask for, right? A whole day celebrating cookies. Gingersnap Cookies.  My personal preference is warm and chewy versus the kind that have a snap to them.  These cookies did not disappoint.

So, to celebrate this wonderful day of cookies, I thought I would whip up and batch.  There is just something wonderful about them.  They seem to be perfect and fit in anytime of the year.  Well…to be honest, what cookie doesn’t taste good any time, any place? Am I right, or am I right?  With that, I sit here writing this blog post, eating Gingersnap Cookies, while the skies are opening up outside.  So, set your oven, get your mixing bowl ready and get baking.  You won’t be sorry.

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter (cubed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4  cup molasses
  • 2 1/4 all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • Pinch of salt
  • White granulated sugar (for the topping)

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degree F.
  2. Lightly grease baking sheet or use parchment paper. (I tried both – cookies turn out the same)
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, molasses and egg with a mixer (or use a spoon until blended thoroughly).
  4. Add the rest of the dry ingredients (everything except the white sugar)
  5. Take about a teaspoon of dough and shape it into round balls.  Dip each ball of dough into the white granulated sugar.
  6. Place each ball onto the greased baking sheet, sugar side up.  You should fit 9 balls per baking sheet.
  7. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes.  Once done in the oven, place the cookies on a cooling rack.
