Gingersnaps with Lemon Sugar

Winter arrives, and like clockwork, my throat starts to scratch, nose runs and the coughing sets in. This time it hit me like a snowball gathering snow as it rolls down the mountain. Bronchitis, no less, and let me tell you- a week in bed , antibiotics and no strength to do ANYTHING!! I probably should have spent more time in bed , but work calls and the kiddies are waiting in class. So now I'm left with a lingering , hacking cough and a general lack of energy, though each day is a bit better. 

I spent an unreasonable ridiculous amount of time searching for all kinds of old-fashioned remedies for the cough, throat, etc. Some very weird, but the majority  talk about a few things over and over. Honey, lemon, ginger, hot liquids (hot liquids were the only thing that relieved some of the chest pain). I am now drinking hot ginger water numerous times during the day. 

This weeks' selection for Baked Sunday Mornings was just the thing I needed to get back into baking.
Gingersnap cookies that are #1 : easy to make- no mixer-yay! #2 :come together very quickly #3: very good to eat!

They're rolled in lemon sugar (just rub some grated lemon zest -I used lime since that is what I had) in 1/2 cup of sugar and roll the little balls of dough in it.
I like my gingersnap cookies to have a "snap" so I left them in the oven for the recommended extra few minutes. If you like them soft, just cut the time .

Great with a hot cup of ginger water, tea, coffee or even a glass of milk if you prefer! 
You can get the recipe here at Baked Sunday Mornings.

  2. Wow - these look bakery-perfect! I hope you're feeling better. I am on round 2 of a terrible cold, too. I appreciate your comment about how baking is fun! It is. And I have just learned so much from this group. xoxo

  3. I think everybody loved how easy this recipe was!!

  4. So pretty! And I love no-mixer-needed recipes too.

    I've been guzzling lemon-honey-ginger tea all weekend long. I'm pretty sure the cooties have won this round.

  5. I'm glad the ginger is helping you feel better, Yael! I know what you mean, it's so nice to have an easier recipe when you're feeling run down. On the bright side, your cookies look so perfect. I hope you're back to normal in no time!


Thanks for reading! I'd love to hear from you!
