If you’re looking for something warm and spicy and autumnal or wintery – this spicy gingerbread layer cake is for you!
While everyone else goes nuts for pumpkin spice, for me the first day of fall means it’s seasonally appropriate to bust out the molasses. Because gingerbread is everything.
These are my FAVORITE gingersnap-esque cookies. I won’t call them gingersnaps ’cause they don’t snap. If you bake them right, they’re nice and soft and chewy and amazing. And they were the perfect “sweet appetizer” for Thanksgiving.
The jury is out on these cookies from Christina Tosi’s Milk Bar Life cookbook. My brother outright spat them in the sink, my mom who never throws anything away stuck the leftovers in the freezer, and (not to stereotype, these are the facts) my Jewish friends loved them.
