Gingersnap Cookies!

Last week I shared an Eggnog Dip that I served with Gingersnap cookies and told you I would be sharing the recipe today.  If your are a molasses or gingersnap cookie fan then this recipe is a must make!  I think this is my favorite by far and I have made quite a few of these recipes.

I doubled this recipe and they were still gone in 3 days.  This is a keeper and like I said, one of the best recipes I have made for spice cookies.

 The best Ginger Snap Cookies with Egg Nog Dip-

I like to receive recipes from and Better Homes and Garden delivered to my inbox.  This allows me to find some great recipes, save them in my favorites bookmarks without going on the internet to find recipes.  I find that when I look for recipes on the internet I have wasted 3 hours and found some great decorating ideas and never found the recipes I went looking for.  Does this sound familiar?

It’s 4 days before Christmas and I hope that I will have some cookies to serve on Christmas eve and Christmas day.  I think I am going to have to bake and hide them.  What about you, do you have all your baking done for Christmas?
