Just the other day I got an email from the New York Times “What to cook this week.” Do you get them? They’ve become kind of a highlight for me, just a minute or two of reading Sam Sifton talk about food. One of the food items he mentioned recently was German Chocolate Cookies.
“Have yourself a merry little Christmas.” That song has been echoing in my mind. A little Christmas. A simple Christmas. I don’t know if I can hold onto that zen when I visit my daughter & the”littles” over the holidays, but I’m hanging on to that feeling now.
Gingersnaps make me absolutely nostalgic. They take me right back to childhood and baking with my Mom We kids would kneel on a chair at the kitchen table so we could reach and we’d take turns dipping a glass in sugar and gently pressing down the gingersnaps before they baked.
If there’s ever a cookie that screams “Christmas” it has to be a White Chocolate & Dried Cranberry Cookie. And so I dutifully waited until after Thanksgiving to post these lovelies.
