Hey, it’s me Lily again!! Did you look at the Christmas Pancakes I shared this week?? I hope so, because they are awesome and I think your kids will love them!! I have another recipe to share that I think your whole family will love. They are soft and chewy Gingersnaps. My dad is 100% obsessed with these cookies, and so am I. They are great to eat all year long, especially in December, and I think they’d be great for Santa on Christmas Eve too. They have molasses and cinnamon and ginger, and if you love those ingredients, I really think you should try these. My dad thinks we should make these every week!
I know we have a lot of cookie recipes here on the site, but these are classic for December. There is nothing better than enjoying a delicious warm cookie with a cold glass of milk. 😀
