Little Women

It's a Christmas/winter tradition. Watching "Little Women" with Mom and whichever sisters are around. Since we were having dinner first, I thought we should eat "period" foods. Mom supplied a lentil/ham soup and salad. Bek brought bread. And I brought dessert.

only a few cookies made the cut
for the women-only party

I left some at home for my taste-tester. He so tirelessly and unselfishly puts up with all this.

Thanks, Esther, for the recipe (page 179 in "Mennonite Country-Style Recipes")! My only complaint this time is the sexist recipe title. I did wonder about heating the molasses. I skipped that and thought my cookies tasted just fine. Anyone know why heating the molasses would make a difference?
