You ever have one of those moments when you realize that you’re getting old and–even scarier–that you’re becoming JUST LIKE YOUR DAD? I had a lot of those moments this Christmas season. I used to make fun of my dad for liking those orange jelly sticks covered in chocolate (I used to call them “old man treats”). Well, guess who just developed an affinity for them this year? I bought a pair of old man slippers to keep my feet warm. That’s right. I’m officially old.
And to top it off, I discovered my love for Gingersnap cookies this year. No, not those crunchy, break-your-teeth version. Rather, moist, chewy on the inside and the perfect crispy texture on the outside. And I found the perfect recipe. Annalise over at Completely Delicious posted her recipe, and it’s fantastic. One key part: don’t skip chilling the dough prior to baking. It has a big impact on the overall texture of the cookie.
