Used book stores and thrift shops can be a treasure house for old recipe books.    Recently I found an enormous book of “1,000 delicious kitchen-tested recipes”,  THE JOY OF CUISINE.  The book was dated 1983 and it was a delightful blast- from- the- past.

I appreciated the many budget-minded recipes in this book.   Rising food costs are making all of us dollar conscious.  This recipe for MOLASSES CRINKLES requires no expensive ingredients.  If you are a regular baker you’ll have everything required in the recipe in your pantry.

The combination of ginger, cinnamon, cloves and freshly ground black pepper (my addition) is positively addictive.   Baking these cookies will fill you kitchen with the most delicious of baking fragrances – spices.  Click on MOLASSES CRINKLES and you’ll have these little sweethearts coming out of the oven before you have your tea made.
