Fantastic Bake Along – Ginger Snaps


Happy Saturday everyone!

Like every month, I’m participating in the Fantastic Bake Along hosted by Tracy @itsatsweetday. This time, we are making Ginger snap cookies, and I’m very excited because I’ve never had them, and also I can use them for 2 of my 18 for 2018 goals 😂 The recipe came from Mary Berry’s cookbook and was chosen by Rebecca from Twinklehook.

First, I have to share something with you! As neither hubby or I have had Ginger snaps before, we googled it. This is what we found 😂

The funniest/saddest thing is that hubby actually has seen that movie, I was almost pissing myself laughing at that point!

Anyway, back to the Bake Along, I followed the recipe exactly, but my dough was still sticky so I added some extra flour until it was nice and smooth like Rebecca described. I was ridiculously excited that I made exactly 15 of them, I think it’s the first time I follow a recipe and I get the exact number that I should! Then, it was only a matter of baking them, I only left them for 12 minutes instead of 15 as they started to smell great and I was afraid to burn them.

And voila! They were delicious, so thanks again Rebecca for sharing this fabulous recipe with us!

If you are interested in participating, contact Tracy and you can also follow my Pinterest board where I will be adding all the recipes for the Bake Along.

    well done on your successful baking – hope they were as good as they look?
    I don’t do much baking these days as I have severe gluten allergy and it’s just not the same, baking with GF flours.

  4. Gingersnaps are my FAVORITE!!! When I was a kid, Oreo’s were brand-spankin new and everyone was eating them…accept me. I always went for my mothers homemade goodies and gingersnaps were my favorite, they still are. Someone gave me a recipe years ago, that I think you might like. After you roll the dough into a ball, an before you squish them into cookies, roll them in some sugar, then press them into shape. When they are baked they shimmer with the sugar crystals and are extra delicious.

  5. Lol! That movie looks so scary funny! It is definitely not on my to watch list:). Your cookies look so round and perfect. I think 12 min was the better idea. I kept mine in for 14 and they ranged on the almost not quite burned side. Thanks for baking with us Emma. It is always fun to see the bakes each month❤️❤️
