Hot and Spicy Gingersnap Cookies

Ok, I have to admit. We don't usually make these for breakfast... but they are SO good. They are the perfect thing for a cold winter night or for a Christmas cookie exchange...

So, why am I telling you about them right now? My mind is on cookies, it seems. There is this group of young ladies around this country that torment me every year. You know who they are: The Girl Scouts.

Their cookies are a little like a controlled substance. The boxes of those cookies are just about the right serving size for me... one serving (Rose can attest to this). For Lent this year I gave up sugary snacks and, well, sugary foods in general and have been doing very well with this deprivation. It has taught me a great deal about my body and about how much I would just EAT before this experience...

Supposedly it takes about 2 weeks for your body to create new habits. Well, my sweet tooth was developed over 32 years, so the past two weeks haven't really dented me. I can resist surprisingly well, bit that doesn't mean that the cravings don't hit HARD!

Why am I telling you this? Because on Easter I am going to be whipping up a big 'ol batch of these delicious, crispy, spicy cookies... get a half gallon of ice cream... and enjoy.

You too can partake in this joy... but maybe in a little more moderation than I do...
