Great, great cookies.
For my very first Sugar High Friday (!), I give you a multi-generational recipe:
I realize molasses cookies aren't an earth-shattering entry. But these cookies have meaning. To us, at least.
See, the recipe for these cookies comes from Alex's great-great-grandmother! The recipe, according to Matt's grandmother's notes, most likely date to (at least) World War I; a time when sugar was rationed. Molasses was commonly used as a sweetener in baking.
Such lovely cookies!
There's just a hint of spice; ginger, cinnamon and clove. You really pick up the molasses, which is (of course) the point. A bit cake-y, very light. (yes, I tried one)
After all, a recipe doesn't work through five generations if it's bad, does it?
