I remember the smell of molasses, waiting for a taste of the bittersweet syrup. It’s kind of addictive – have you ever noticed? It’s richer than it’s more-refined cousin, sugar, but heavier.
Today was the first time I’d made them by myself. It was a simple recipe, but adapting it to different food allergies within the family was both interesting and rewarding.
They turned out just as I remembered them – sweet bursts of gingery flavor that leave a tang on your lips. Perfect for fall.
It’s a ginger snap kind of day, wouldn’t you agree?
