Obligatory Fictional Backstory

After the Santa fiasco of last year, I was determined to fill the house with cookies. I made chocolate chip, shortbread, ultimate chocolate cookies of every variety, peanut butter blossoms, ginger snaps, sugar cookies….let’s go back to the ginger snaps. I love them. My family hates them. Too spicy, apparently. So in spite of the plethora of confections I already made, I set off to figure out a “less spicy” ginger snap type recipe. Though “snap” is also a little bit of a misnomer because I like chewy cookies. But I digress.

These cookies have juuuust the right amount of spice, with the nice chewy texture of a ginger or molasses cookie. They’re delicious on their own but since I ordered a tub of Cinnabon frosting I may just make some sandwiches. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good cookie.

And now, in the spirit of Christmas and shameless self promotion, I present to you my version of The Twelve Days of Christmas starring some of my favorite recipes!
