Molasses Peanut Butter Crinkles
Plump sugar-topped cookies that taste just like Mary Jane candies. I tone down the ginger and cloves for my toddlers.
Hermit Bar Cookies
This recipe is probably 50 years old - Mom made it for us, and now I make it for our kids - they love these bars. Enjoy!
Big Soft Ginger Cookies
These are just what they say: big, soft, gingerbread cookies. They stay soft, too. My oldest son's favorite.
Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies
This melt-in-your-mouth ginger cookie recipe that I received from my grandmother has been enjoyed in my family since 1899.
My Mom's recipe and one of my favorites. Spicy and chewy, they store well and can be frozen. Great for gift giving or shipping.
This was my mother-in-law's recipe and my husband's favorite. Shorten or lengthen the cooking time for a softer or crisper cookie.
Molasses Sugar Cookies
These are a wonderful chewy spice cookie. They are drop cookies that keep very well. I make them at the beginning of the holiday season and they keep all the way to New Year's!
WWII Oatmeal Molasses Cookies
This was my Grandmother's recipe from the 1940's. These cookies use molasses in place of brown sugar, which was one of the items rationed during the war (and harder to get than white sugar, they tell me). To me they're better than regular oatmeal cookies!
I have searched far and wide for a recipe that mimics my favorite, store-bought version of these cookies. I think, after days of thrown-out cookies, I have come as close as I can get.
