Holiday Recipe Exchange - I Need Your Help

I absolutely love filling my house with the smells of Christmas Cookies, Thanksgiving dinner, and everything related to holiday cooking.  I love cooking but not baking but I always manage to go outside of myself during the holiday season so that we can have more food than we can eat and so that we can share with my family and others that drop by.

This year is our first year in our own house and I intend to have lots of visitors!  I will be filling our new house with new smells and can not wait to share them.

I will be bringing you those recipes also but while I am doing that, would love to hear yours.  Please send your recipes that you would like to share and I will be posting them everyday.  If you do share, not only will you receive 5 extra entries into my giveaways for every recipe you share but if you have a blog, I will also be linking to your site every time I share one of your recipes! 

Email your recipes to and let's have some fun!

I get 90% of my recipes from an incredible online site called The thing I love about it is each recipe is rated by people who have actually made the recipe. This recipe was a big hit with my family. We make 25-30 different kinds of cookies each Christmas.

Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

1 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup molasses
4 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder 1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 cup white sugar for decoration

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 1/2 cups of sugar until smooth. Mix in the eggs, and then the molasses. Combine the whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice, heaping the measures if you like a lot of spice. Stir the dry ingredients into the molasses mixture just until blended.
3. Roll the dough into small balls, and dip the top of each ball into the remaining white sugar. Place the cookies about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets.
4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops are cracked. Bake longer for crispy cookies, less time for chewy cookies. Cool on wire racks.
