  1. My tastebuds thank you…my hips however?

  2. Mmm! These look and sound fantastic!

  3. Those look awesome.
    I’m tempted to attempt baking. Never a safe idea.

    • I hear ya…though these ones are pretty easy. The mixture is supposed to be sort of stiff so you can’t go too wrong with that.

      Good luck if you do attempt it.

  4. I never considered adding white chocolate chips to gingersnaps. Brilliant!
