Grandma B's Molasses Sugar Cookies
Rating (0 Rated)
"When I was young I remember my Grandma always had a jar of these cookies on the top of her refrigerator (where she knew we couldn't reach them). I felt so triumphant the day I could stand on the kitchen chair and actually reach the jar! When I bite into these cookies at the holidays, the fond memories return and I still miss my Grandma." - - Pam Mehnert, general manager
