Jumbo Vegan Ginger Molasses Cookies

Hello everyone,

Welcome to…………

wpid-textgram_1446521642.png

This recipe was inspired by my mother. She shared a story from her childhood with me about her and her older sister. They would each get 10 cents as allowance money from their parents. She said that from time to time they would get 25 cents and when they did they would feel like the riches, girls in the world.

They would take their allowance money and head to the local country store and treat themselves to Ginger and Molasses cookies which were 2 for 1 cent, a soda, and peanuts. Walk down the road and sit on the steps outside the church they attended and enjoy their treats all to themselves. I love the way my mom lit up as she told me that sweet little story.

So, I decided to try and replicate one of her favorite childhood special treats with my own little twist!

Let’s dive into the recipe…..
