Be A Good Cookie Week, Day 5: Gingersnaps!!

On the fifth day of Be A Good Cookie Week, my super-scholarly-snarky-sweet-sociable-valiant friend Mads gave to me us:



Admittedly, valiant kind of blew my Ode to Mads “s” alliteration right out of the water, but anyone who camps in mountain lion territory in December, when said mountain lions might be a tad hungry, is definitely that.

Valiant also describes the girl who was first to jump on our Be A Good Cookie Week bandwagon, even though her post punctuates a hellacious week of Finals.  If you haven’t read Mads’ yet, you really should.

Squirrel! moment. My apologies…

Back to the cookies.  To add to the excitement of Be A Good Cookie Week, Jeanne, Kat, Megan, Mads, Allison, and I did not tell each other which cookies we chose to bake from the Cookies For Kids’ Cancer cookbook, this week. So every day has been a complete surprise to us us, too. Fun!

So, when I saw that Mads’ chose Gingersnaps!!, I couldn’t help but smile. Thoughts of the crisp, chewy crunch of Gingersnaps!! that leaves a slight burn of ginger on the lips brings me right back to my Grandma’s front porch; sitting next to her with that big yellow box between us, just watching the world go by. I have so many fond memories of Gingersnaps!! that the word demands capitalization and two exclamation points.

Click over to visit my friend Mads, and see what warm childhood memories her Gingersnaps!! may conjure up in you.
