Sparkly Snow, Chewy Cookies

I guess winter has arrived!  I can't remember the last time it snowed before Thanksgiving.  This is especially crazy considering I spent a year living in Hawaii with no snow at all.  But nevertheless, I woke up this morning to this:

If you look close, there is a bird on the feeder.

And I decided I needed to instate a new tradition:  First day of snow cookies.  

VeggieGirl blogged about the Sparkling Ginger Cookies from Vegan With a Vengeance, and upon seeing them I just HAD to make them.  I didn't have pretty sugar, so they aren't quite as sparkly...but they were still just as tasty!   

Delish!  I found that mug in the back of the cupboard, I apparently made it in 8th grade.

And yes, I even calculate the nutritional information for cookies:

Nutritional Information:  113.5 Calories;  4.6g Total Fat;  0.4g Saturated Fat;  0.0mg Cholesterol;  75.4,g Sodium;  17.8g Carbohydrates;  1.3g Fiber;  1.4g Protein

Today's CSotD is:  Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney

I have to cut this a little short because I am in class right now!  I know, bad bad!


  1. Ohh my gosh! Those cookies are adorable and so is your mug! Wow! you had some mad skills for being able to create such a perfect mug in the 8th grade.
    I've never had ginger cookies before, but now I really want to make them! Thanks for sharing :)

    P.S. the snow is lovelyyyy!
