the perfect gingersnaps

This LA Christmas wouldn't quite be complete without a cactus, a dinosaur, a little lemon cypress tree in a tin can, and my favorite, ooey-gooey-with-crispy-edges-gingersnaps. If you want your house to smell like Christmas, bake these. We ate so many this weekend, as a late night snack with wine & then again with hot coffee in the chilly morning. I found this recipe from the Creme de la Crumb blog last year and it is still my favorite--chewy and pillowy, impeccably molasses-y. I added a little extra salt, just like my mama taught me, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. The perfect Christmas treat.   


  1. Ooh. I need to make some Gingersnaps now! And I LOVE the dinosaur; so, so cute!
