Just in time for christmas!!! With that being said This recipe isn't for everyone and unless you want a molasses ginger snap cookie vape I wouldn't rush out and buy all of these unless you want exactly that a molasses ginger snap cookie. With that being said this also needs a long steep and this mix is dark as night so again this isn't for everyone but it is a delicious molasses ginger snap cookie and I mean exactly that!!! I have had Flavorah ginger snap for a long time and never used it because it's just that a dark ginger snap and unless that's exactly what your looking for than this concentrate isn't for you and the same goes for wonder flavours molasses unless you want exactly that molasses than this concentrate isn't for you but if you do want these two profiles than these two are perfect and when mixed together it makes a delicious molasses ginger snap treat.
I am going to break the notes in to two parts the cookie and the additives.
I used flavorah ginger snap I found I got a fuller cookie at 3% which may seem high but trust and believe if you give this recipe a try and wait t steep time you will have a magical molasses ginger snap cookie. Now with just ginger snap it seems a little damp so I wanted to firm and crisp up the cookie a little not a lot just a little so I added .75% of flavorah cookie this concentrate is well worth the price tag personally I use this flavor all the time and I got my bottle last march and I still have over a quarter of it and its only 15ml you do the math its worth every dollar. I mean cap sugar cookie you have to use at least 3× more in a mix for example so the cost isn't as much more as you might think in the long run. Anyway this simple mix of flavorah cookie and ginger snap makes up the cookie but then I added a little flavorah eggnog I used eggnog to emulate that eggy moistness you get when you bite into a fresh molasses ginger snap. Eggnog also has a spice note to it and that definetly helps with spicing up the cookie a little. The eggnog is at a fairly low percentage and you cant even notice its presence but of is vital in the texture and flavor of this delicate dark cookie.
Basically I used exactly what you would use if you were making molasses ginger snap cookies. Of coarse I needed molasses so I used wonder flavours offering and it didn't dissapoint at 1% a get dark sweet molasses not overpowering in any way. Then I wanted just a touch of cinnamon so I added .10% of flavorah rich cinnamon this is very light almost like a slight cinnamon sugar sprinkled over the top. So with that being said I needed some brown sugar and I used TFA brown sugar for this at .75%.. I then wanted a touch of vanilla to pull everything together now I don't expect the vanilla to come out in thallape much but it will help with the end flavor of the cookie and it will bind the other flavors together and blend into them all. I used flavorah vanilla bean for this I am sure you could sub this with another vanilla just don't go to high because flavorah vanilla bean is more of a light accent than it is a strong vanilla so pick the sub carefully if you need to Sub. It will be best if you don't gamble with a sub and stick to the flavorah vanilla bean at 1%. Now with this mix I used flavorah sweetness at .25% which is lightly sweetened I absolutely love flavorah sweetness but you may like a different sweetener or no sweetener at all totally a personal preference..
A dark, bready tobacco with a fruity fig finish. Something like eating a sleeve of fig netwtons and a freshly opened pack of cigarettes at the same time, but at least moderately more pleasant than that. It's a bit obnoxious, really. But obnoxious can be fun, and sometimes I need a tobacco that doesn't screw around.
This recipe has a long and tortured genesis. The original base for the recipe was a recipe called "Gravity" from a MixLife grudge match between myself and the mighty ID10-T. The original parameters of the mixoff were five flavors, all flavorah. I came up with a fig newton after messing around some of the darker, bolder flavors from the flavorah line. I eked out a win (shoutout to making stupid, risky choices) with this recipe:
.25% FLV Apple Pop
.25% FLV Cookie
2% FLV Ginger Snap
.25% FLV Raisin Rum
.75% FLV Sweet Fig (Subbed out for .5% FLV Fig, as the judges didn't actually have sweet fig.)
It was good enough to win, but it was overall just a bit too dark and intense for a fig newton cookie.
But hey, Ckemist suggested turning into a tobacco, so that's what we did. Lean into the darkness.
Not a ton has changed from the original gravity recipe here. I've cut the FLV Ginger Snap in half, just because that tobacco is already pretty darn dark and I didn't need everything going too bitter and burnt. I've also just embraced the sub for FLV Fig as opposed to FLV Sweet Fig. There isn't much of a difference, and the straight Fig is quite a bit more popular.
I don't really have a solid enough grasp with tobaccos to start throwing 4 at a time in here, so I just settled for one of my favorite non-aromatic tobaccos at the basic bitch percentage of 2%. Messing around with the tobacco here is a good idea. Make it work for you. I'd generally stay away from anything aromatic. If there's anything too close to an ammonia flavor in there it's going to push that FLV Fig into some weirder off notes. This also doesn't seem to work particulary well with oriental/turkish/herbalish tobaccos. You just want something solid for all the newton to bounce off of. Kentucky worked for me here. Cured felt a little lighter but it was a'ight as well.
I'm a bit of masochist, but adding .5% FA Black Fire adds a really interesting sweet smoke to this... I thinks it's a bit too dark to really work well with INW DNB or FLV Classic Cigarette for anything too overtly ashy. This also benefits quite a bit from .25% FA MTS if it's coming across as too harsh for you.
Steep time here is mostly going to be dictated by the Tobacco. This works pretty well after an overnight, and starts to fade out a bit on day 3. That tobacco should come back in about 2 weeks though, so maybe forget about it for a while, okay? I find it works best as a high nic mtl banger but do whatever you want.
The base- cinnamon Danish swirl macaron and Ginger Snap come together for a fantastic cook. The inspiration here was cookie I ate on my honeymoon this is a very Dominican thing cinnamon and Ginger macaroon. The cinnamon Danish swirl mostly a cinnamon flavoring with a light Bakery Downey combines flawlessly with the Ginger Snap to give you that slightly dry cookie flavoring I've been added macaroon for the hint of coconut and to make the cookies more complex.
The top notes- you getting a nice bright Apple with the rest of the cookie flavoring Fuji and strawberry ripe come together here as the top notes do you strawberry simply sweetens the Fuji and adds a layer of complexity.
Accents- meringue does so many different things here boosts the cookie by giving it that trademark meringue cereal flavor along with sweetening everything else.
Sleep time- I've been on the fence about this one for some time now I knew it was one of my favorites but wasn't able to discern whether or not to submit it until the two-week steep time had passed I don't think you need the full two weeks but it's not going to hurt. So 2 weeks lol
