Molasses Butterball Cookies | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book
These cookies were sent to me year after year when I was a soldier by my mom, Dorothy. I never tired of them, The molasses and walnuts just reach out and say home, while it was tradition to share your goodies with the rest of the guys in the unit, I have to confess, I used to stash these away when I could get away with it and save them exclusively for my greedy little chompers. To all of you I say share if you can, but DO Enjoy…
