This weekend we are off to Oak Glen to buy some apples. It's a tradition.
Oak Glen is a town in the moutains with apple orchards and quaint little barns and stores. We see the same people every year. We know which apples we like. I'm partial to Arkansas Black. Thom likes Pink Ladies. We buy cider. Like I said, it's tradtion.
It's been a bad year for apples. We heard that a lot of our favorite apple farmers aren't even opening shop this year. Which makes us sad. I guess in a bad economy, apples don't even grow.
But we Meekers are staunch about our traditions. The show must go on.
I made some cookies to pack in our knapsacks. I paired gingersnaps with pumpkin cream cheese frosting. They turned out amazing if I do say so myself.
So I thought I'd share.
I like this recipe for the cookies. They are nice and chewy. Then I used this recipe for the frosting. I like it because it has a hint of orange which gives the cookies a nice tang.
I call them gingersnappers.
Have a fab weekend. I plan to.
