flowerMolasses Cookies

Hello my dear friends…it’s been awhile.  Please forgive me for being MIA for so long.

With all this Covid stuff, at camp all summer and life ,I’ve not felt like posting anything..but I’m in the mood now.

Thought I’d start by sharing a new cookie…spices mean fall and they are yummy.  They are soft and pillowy.  They remind me of a cookie my husbands grandmother made..so when I saw this recipe I had to try it.

Enjoy this with your favourite drink.
