I absolutely LOVE this season! I love the meaning behind it all, I love the decorations, I love the music and I love the food. Holiday baking has always been such a fond holiday memory as long as I can remember. I would bake with, or sit and visit with, my mom as she baked for all the neighbors and Christmas gatherings. Anything from cinnamon rolls to cookies she did it all. The smell of spices, particularly ginger, takes me right back to her kitchen.

I have a gingersnap recipe on the blog but it is a Chewy Gingersnap recipe. I actually love chewy cookies BUT there have been a few requests for a Crisp Gingersnap cookie recipe and I am more than happy to deliver. If you are more of a chewy cookie person, DEFINITELY check out that other recipe (the reviews are amazing 🙂 ) but if you are on the snap and crispy gingersnap side, this is the cookie recipe for you! They are absolutely DELICIOUS! Happy holiday baking!

    Crisp Gingersnaps Easy Cookies .I used Granny Smith apples in this apple crisp recipe. Actually, I made this apple crispy in a cast iron pan instead of a 9 inch square cookware. While the oven was preheating, I melted a few tablespoons of butter in the pan and layered the apple mixture on melted butter, then sprinkled the top over the apple mixture. The apple looked like something you could see on a crunchy decorated magazine cover, and the flavor took me back when I was little and my grandmother’s apple crunchy meal. VERY good and for me, very soothing meal.

    Crisp Gingersnaps Easy Cookies.”This is sweet and hard apples are the best dessert for early autumn only when in season. Use the best quality cinnamon you can buy and get it from a spice merchant or even in a store where you can buy it in bulk; ten minutes after you enter the oven, the fragrance will fill the house and borrow something years ago. neighbors will return them to invite themselves and wonder loudly if there is any remaining (Note: none). Optional accompaniment will be caramel sauce, ice cream and whipped cream. “
