Here are ginger cookies from an old recipe that we tried out. It was not the one we ended up using for A History of Connecticut Food, but another, less molasses-rich recipe. Once people started finding cane sugar more readily available, they used molasses less in cookies and other sweets. However, I tend to think that in some cases, that switch is a huge mistake. Molasses and ginger go so well together - why mess with perfection?
