seasonal treat: pumpkin gingersnap cookies

Around this time of year, I love seasonal recipes and making things that remind me of fall. I made these for Mark this weekend, and though they turned out much more soft than what you'd usually think of as a gingersnap, they were still a great fall treat.

The black tar looking goop is molasses. I adore the smell of molasses and love cookies made with it. (Which reminds me I need to make a family recipe for molasses cookies soon...)

Batter for gingersnaps with molasses always looks gross until the dry ingredients are blended into the mix. Little clumps of butter and sugar everywhere.

There we go. This is better.
