With Fall comes Fall seasonings. Cinnamon, Pumpkin Spice, Ginger, etc. Those are some of my favorites. Last night it was extremely chilly here in Massachusetts. It was the first real cold night we have had in a long time. It was one of those nights where you can’t help but to put on an over sized sweater, leggings, slippers and cuddle up with a big blanket on the couch. It’s so cozy and relaxing. The only thing that makes it even more cozy is a nice warm drink and a delicious snack. We made hot chocolate and tea, but did not have a snack. So after a family vote, we decided to make one of our favorite fall cookies. The Snickerdoodle! They were delicious and were the perfect snack for lounging on a chilly fall night.
