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!

Gingersnaps:


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?
