If you have ever stepped foot in my bakery during the fall and Christmas season, you will find the most delicious soft Molasses cookies.  They were a top seller in November and December.

And it has been around forever….. like colonial times.

So here’s a recipe I found in Granny’s 1946 Grandma’s Old Fashioned Molasses recipe book.  Yes, 1946.  I just love these old booklets……
