In the mid to late 70’s, Grams came to live with us.
I really didn’t understand what divorce was, all I knew is that I got to see my grandma every. single. day.
And when you have a fabulous grandma, every. single. day is the best thing ever to a 8 year old.
Grandma was so poor that if she had had 2 pennies to rub together, she would have felt rich, but whenever she did have a wee bit o’cash, she would buy Sister and I treats.
Treats like cheese puffs, and candy bars, and iced spice cookies.
Spice cookies like today’s Sugar Topped Molasses Spice Cookies that I made for today’s TWD.
These cookies brought all that flooding back, and put a lump in my throat.
Even though Grams was poor monetarily, she was so very rich in love.
And I’d give every. penny. I. have. for just one more hug from her.
Make these cookies, and enjoy your Grams…if you still have one.
PS. I didn’t put in the black pepper. Who puts black pepper in cookies? blech!
