Gingersnaps with Lemon Sugar Chilling

I was planning to skip this one. It’s Friday morning, two weeks away from first term exams (4 exams, 4 papers, thanks for asking), we’re going on a ski vacation in a couple of days and the Sabbath will kick in a bit over two hours.  Pretty irresponsible to  bake anything now, let alone cookies to be featured on my
