Our grandmothers molasses cookies ; a good snack to fill a sweet craving hunger.

These cookies are a delicious sweet treat in the morning or in the afternoon and even as a late snack after dinner.

It’s a family recipe that comes from my grandmother. With 12 children, grandmother did wonders with a meager budget.
Molasses, the poor’s sugar at the time of the colonies, was used liberally to sweeten many recipes. Although she no longer as popular at the beginning of the century it is still doing wonders in this kind of pastry.

Quick Tip: children love these tasty cookies so much that we recommend doubling the recipe, you will get about 60 beautiful cookies and will not have to start over the next day.
