Day Two Hundred and Eighty Eight

And my baking streak continues. I made the most awesome ginger cookies today. I decided to call them Sandy Spice cookies for a few reasons:

  1. They are rolled in a combination of sugar and cinnamon before baking that makes them look sandy. 
  2. My mom (aka Sandy) loves ginger cookies.
  3. My friend Sandra loves ginger cookies as well, and I am going to give her some for her b-day this past week when I see her tomorrow!
