Of course I think of my grandma when I make these cookies. I would be so happy when she made them for family gatherings and would love to know her secret. Part of who I am, my love of food and desire to work with my hands, I inherited from my grandma. It’s a bitter sweet thought….. Although I have been to countless family reunions and weddings, I don’t really know my grandma on a personal level. As my immediate family became less conservative, my grandparents remained very conservative and religious. I always felt a separation from my grandparents and a desire to have a deeper connection with them. Now that I am older, I am starting to see that it’s never too late to reach out………maybe Molasses Crinkles are a good place to start……..
