My grandmother, Louise was a great cook - I was speaking with her brother just yesterday, when I told him that I was making these cookies, he started reminiscing about her molasses cookies - I can still taste them too - thick and oh, so good. This is where all the baking started - isn't that a great old fridge??
The "pantry" above was a new addition to the house, that same fridge used to be out in the kitchen area. It's not the greatest picture but she is wearing an apron - maybe she had whipped something up that day!
Before Christmas I found this little Robin Hood Flour cookbook while out thrifting - it's only 28 pages but it's chock full of great cookies and squares..
So, I made the recipe from the book - they are just like I remember them - the very same!!! And, they taste so fresh, because I used my raspberry jam that I made this summer. Click on the recipe if you're interested in making them. There is one instruction that is funny - pour flour into dry measuring cup. Level off and pour onto waxed paper. Add soda and salt, stir well. What is that? Stirring on a piece of waxed paper - I have quite enough bowls - I don't need a big mess like that all over the counter, I don't recall ever reading that in a recipe before.
The finished product - on my Pyrex Pink Leaves Plate.
They're ready for anytime snacking in the Pyrex Cookie Jar! This is a great recipe - let me know if you try it...
I'm linking up with A Favorite Thing at Mockingbird Hill Cottage - these cookies were really one of my favorites all those years ago when I could run across the road to watch my grandmother bake, and they're still my favorite!
