Yumy yum!

I served these to my midwife and her apprentice and they just raved about them asking for the recipe. My whole family loves them too. Thanks!

Just like my Grandma's

That's what my husband said about these cookies, and that is a high compliment. He and the children loved them.

Very good cookie - just made them and am taste-testing right now. :) Super-easy to whip up and I enjoy the slightly crisp outside, tender inside. Yummy! Thank you!

A favourite here

Simple to make, I thought I would try this recipe and it is very similar to the one I usually use. I find it helps to chill dough for a bit in the fridge, then the dough is not so sticky when you roll it into balls. :)

Family recipe

My great aunt gave this recipe several years ago and it has remained a favourite. I love the spice combination with the molasses. It is more a "winter time" recipe here.
