I’ve always loved this house. Every time I drive into town, I swing by this place. Today, it’s decorated for fall and Halloween.
Here’s a tree that caught my eye, with its golden leaves, they shimmer in the breeze.
Because today was chilly and dreary outside, I made Bulldog Man a treat of homemade Ginger Snap cookies from a recipe submitted by RAMB, posted on allrecipes.com.
¾ cup butter (or margarine)
1 cup white sugar
¼ cup molasses
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
(1/2 cup white sugar for decoration)
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
In a bowl, cream together the butter and 1 cup white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and molasses until well blended. Combine the flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir into the molasses mixture to form dough. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll the balls in the ½ cup white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 – 10 minutes, place cookies on wire rack to cool.
