It’s Better to Taste Good than to Look Good

When I married into my husband’s family, I inherited the family molasses cookie recipe.  Supposedly this recipe goes back to Moses.  Or at  least to the 19th century.  At any rate, it’s been around for a while, and there is a reason for this.  They are GOOO-HOOOD!  And they are fun to make.  My husband’s parents still make these cookies every year, as does his sister’s family.  A few years ago my husband decided we should get in on the fun as well, and we’ve been making them ever since.

I used my new Flip Ultra video camcorder to get some video footage of our cookie making extravaganza this year.  My husband had fun with the editing, and he even managed to get in a plug for his Handyguys Podcast.  Look for it!
