    Oh I love these gorgeous spice cookies. I’m amazed with your grandparents’ business and how cool is it that this is their bookkeepers’ recipe. It makes it more special. Max is just adorable! xx

    Beautiful spice cookies! Thanks for posting a gluten free version – my dad is avoiding gluten and he loves molasses and spice cookies.
    And Max is beautiful, too 🙂

    These are simply beautiful and even more so with the story of where they came from – I just love reading your posts and am always inspired by your recipes. I have not tried gluten-free baking yet but these certain will be on the list when I dive in 🙂

    You succeeded in getting me in the mood for a cookie! Nick and I just sanded cabinets for four hours, so a cookie (and milk) sounds wonderful. I wonder if these cookies would work with oat flour or brown rice flour. Those are the only two gluten free flours I’ve worked with, and they always seem to work perfectly.

    I love, love, love family or old time friend recipes! I recently found my grandmother’s recipe box in her old home (she passed away 10 years ago… we’re a little slow on going through things. Hard to believe, no?)

    The molasses make me think Christmas cookie for sure. Wish we could enjoy one together over coffee 😉

    For the record, I have grocery shopped before 🙂 Second, Edith and what’s the “A” in EA or are you just EA I’ve always wondered. As for cookies, I would gladly eat these, baking and I haven’t become friends yet but this recipe is possible/not to scary.

    Great looking cookies. Still sticking with the fitness challenge. My fave holiday time cookie is PB with the Hershey kiss on top, and of course ginger bread. No new pets for us. We are only allowed 2 on base and we are fully stocked. But that is one cute puppy they got there.

    Awww, what a cute puppy! I wish I could get a dog, but instead I often pretend that my roommate’s pup is really mine. My favorite holiday food is fudge that my great aunt always makes for me, but I do love trying out different types of cookies too!!

    Those cookies look so enticing! I do a similar Swedish one (heritage) but we put pepper and lots of ginger in them – very spicy! We aren’t big sweet eaters but your cookies really do look good. Thanks so much for sharing these, and the photo of Max – adorable!
