makin' cookies

Spent a little time on Saturday making some cookies... Gingersnaps & Peanut Butter cookies to be exact. Used my Grandma's recipes and tried to channel her baking mastery. Seems to have worked!


Front of the recipe my Grandma used (originally from her friend Sophia Lockwood).

Back of recipe.

Gingersnap dough rolled into 1 inch balls... now ready to be rolled in sugar.

Sugar coated dough balls... ready for the oven to turn them into perfectly cracked gingersnaps.

Oh yes... they have signature ginger-cracks with a snap. No soft gingerSNAPs allowed in my kitchen. They are the perfect coffee dunkin' goodness. Grandma would have served them!

Peanut Butter Cookies:

Grandma's recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies... with an optional handwritten addition placed there by my 11-year-old hand. Heh.

1-inch pb-doughballs... ready to be sugared up.

Sugared... forked... ready to become flaky, melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter cookies.

Perfectiones. And... they melted on my toungue. Good Grandma mojo.

Can I get a call back from you if I make these cookies?
