Dipped Gingersnaps in a Can :)

So since Shawn has been gone he's only made a few requests - one being dipped gingersnaps.  They've always been a family favorite and anyone I have ever made them for always asks for more.  So since the timing was right I decided to make them for valentine's day.  He will just have to celebrate a few days late because they went in the mail today!

Anyway, I wanted to share a few pictures of the process.  Enjoy!

Cream the sugar oil and eggs and add the molasses

Try not to have adorable distractions - they will slow you down!

In a separate bowl, add the dry ingredients

The dough will look and smell yummy but it takes a few batches to acquire a taste for it :)

Roll the dough into quarter size balls and roll into the sanding sugar

Place 2" apart on parchment paper

Watch the cookies and drool :)

Bake 8 minutes

Dip cookies halfway and let excess drip off

Put about 20 chips in a baggie and melt in the microwave. 
Clip a small piece off the corner and drizzle :)

 Now since I have a little one, the cans came in handy. 
I'm sure you could find many useful containers to use the same way.

Decorate and share :)

 I thought the black and white one was my favorite but the more I look at them the more I like the blue one :) Happy valentine's day Shawn - I love and miss you!

If you want the recipe, feel free to drop me a comment/email and I'll share the rest of it!
