Who doesn’t love a ginger snap recipe?! Be sure to add this one to your next weekend bakeoff.
Normal Ice Cream began from the invention of an ice cream concept by its owner, Alexa Norlin, who is self-claimed as a normal girl from a normal place (Read: The Women Behind Utah’s Food Renaissance). In addition to her unique ice cream recipes, Norlin created this one-of-a-kind Gingersnap Cookie recipe nearly 10 years ago. The cookie has seen many days in Salt Lake City, first at The Rose Establishment serving as the staple ginger snap + cream cheese ice cream sandwich. Feel free to share your cookies with others, but we won’t judge you when you keep them all to yourself.

If you have ever been to Utah and ordered french fries at a restaurant…you are probably acquainted with Fry Sauce. In Utah it’s considered a state treasure. Utah-based burger chain Arctic Circle claims to have invented fry sauce in the 1940s. Seventy years after it was first served, fry sauce is still a classic favourite at Arctic Circle. In fact, the restaurant chain goes through nearly 50,000 gallons of the sauce annually in the chain’s dining rooms, where self-service pumps are going through two gallons a day on average.
Combining ketchup (tomato sauce) and mayonnaise may not be a unique idea – In Argentina it’s called “golf sauce” and is used on fries, burgers and sandwiches. In Germany it’s called “Rott Weiss” – but Utah claims their sauce has one “secret” ingredient that makes all the difference in their recipe.…pickle juice. Recipe here.
Utah residents consume more Jell-o (Jelly) per capita than any other state in the USA. They love their Jell-O so much it’s considered the official snack of Utah. And they made it into a pin for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Green seems to be the colour of choice. No need for a recipe here…just add water.
This Utah dish started out as a dish created after funeral gatherings but is now more commonly seen as a side dish at the family dinner. Best served with ham, bread rolls, salad and green Jell-o. The importance of the dish does not come from its history, the ingredients used, or its expense, but from the love and compassion that is associated with the dish. Funeral potatoes are important because every bite of cheese filled potato goodness brings comfort to any belly and heart.
