Post image for CINNAMON SNAPS
Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted. With this being my last big semester at CSULB (and then GRADUATION!) life has been busy! Plus, by boyfriend and I just moved to LA from San Diego, to make this even more chaotic.

These cookies were made with limited ingredients in our new kitchen. Originally I set out to make gingerbread cookies, but with no molasses or ginger, they turned out to be CINNAMON SNAPS! (Equally delicious!)

Cinnamon Snaps


1/2 cup margarine 

1/2 cup dark brown sugar 

1/2 cup dark corn syrup 

1 egg yolk 

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour 

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon baking powder 

1/2 teaspoon baking soda 

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground cloves 

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg


In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until smooth. Stir in corn syrup and egg yolk. 

Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg; blend into the molasses mixture until smooth. Cover, and chill for at least one hour. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. Frost or decorate when cool.
