Every holiday season we would sell molasses ginger cookies, which were absolutely divine. They spread out flat, but retained some thickness, chewy and spicy all at the same time. While I managed quite a bit of duties at DeLuscious, I never actually baked there (ironic, I know), so I have no clue what the recipe was, and I’d never tell you if I did. Instead of using plain old sugar to coat the cookies, they used large granular sugar. The large granules give a satisfying crunch to the chewy middle. This recipe has all the autumn spices with the holiday time charm.
Raise your hand if you feel a 1-year-old baby would make a better president than either of the two front runners. Well, that was our sentiment when we came up with our son’s 1st birthday theme. I made my healthy smash cake for babies (though, to be honest, I switched out the healthy frosting for the real stuff this time).
Wow, it must be a high holiday miracle! For what seems like the first time, Rosh Hashanah is not sneaking up on me this year, catching me by surprise. In preparation, I made some round challot with a bangin’ new apples and honey challah recipe, and even put together a video tutorial of how to braid it. Look at me, I’m a stud!
