Tonight as the snow fell, I was so excited to make gingerbread cookies. So I got all my ingredients together and… realized I was missing the most important one- molasses! So I hoped on Pinterest to find a recipe that I had everything for- I have never made snickerdoodles before, but that recipe caught my eye. Talk about easy! And the ingredients seemed to be all staples so, done and done.
