FAVE MEMORY: one of my very earliest memories is the tins of Xmas cookies mom would start baking in early December. Each tin would hold a different cookie- butterball, spritz, pinwheels, sugar sprinkles , cut outs & more. It was heavenly. She continued the tradition for years & years. Even as an adult, it was fun to find the tins & sneak a cookie 😋. In this Xmas pic, I got my favorite doll, my brother got a drum set with a bucking bronco on the side of it 😍. Still....the cookies were the best!! This recipe is from gramma Helen’s cook book published in 1931 & I still have it. It’s beautifully leather bound & embossed.
Molasses Ginger Cookies are one of my favorites, especially at the Christmas holiday. I've made these cookies so many times over the years. I make them for my Dad, who also loves molasses cookies. I have wonderful memories of my Mom baking when I was a child. She was the inspiration for this illustration to go with my cookie recipe.
