    Halcyon Eve's Note:

    From "The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook": "'No, indeed! The rosebud tea set! Well, what next? You know I never use that except for the minister or the Aids. You'll put down the old brown tea set. But you can open the little yellow crock of cherry preserves. It's time it was being used anyhow--I believe it's beginning to work. And you can cut some fruit cake and have some of the cookies and snaps.'" (From "Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery). Times are estimates; cooking time includes chilling time, but cooling time for both molasses mixture and cookies (beyond the first 5 minutes) is not included.

      I only got 18 cookies but I did roll the balls a bit bigger. The cloves overpower the ginger alot. They are a very heavy dense cookie. I was surprised to see no eggs in them LOL I think I will try these again but with some tweaking. I am from the Maritimes and we love our gingersnaps LOL made for Everyday is Holiday tag

      The flavor of these cookies was all right, but not a winner with the kids and menfolk, who were expecting a somewhat sweet cookie. If you follow the directions, you get very hard little crunchy cookies with a dark spicy flavor. I made the cookies very small - about a nickel diameter ball - and only got out 30. There's no way you could get 48, as the recipe says. Pass by this recipe.
