Molasses Crinkles of Love

by Heather on December 4, 2012

Once upon a time in my younger years my Mimi would make us her molasses crinkles to take home every time we’d go visit her over the holidays. This was a great idea because I LOVED those cookies, and yet my parents were in charge of the gallon-sized plastic bag of them. While it wasn’t fun, they rationed them out to us over the following several days, making sure I would get my cookie fix but not put myself in a sugar coma.

When I got a little older I played volleyball and golf in high school. Now, volleyball I couldn’t bring myself to ask for cookies to take to games. I knew that playing hard and all that movement might cause a little…er…disruption in my stomach if I fueled with sweets. Plus I don’t know if you’ve ever seen volleyball uniforms, but cookies and Spandex shorts don’t really mix well. Just sayin’.

Golf, however, was a different story. We had long road trips to the courses we were playing and even though we carried our clubs and walked all 18+ holes it was more a slow burn and the disruption from eating cookies while playing wasn’t there as much as with volleyball. And so my mom would bake me gallon-sized plastic bags of Mimi’s Molasses Crinkles to take on the bus and enjoy while playing and, you know, to share with my teammates.

Guess how many of those teammates even saw a crumb of those cookies?


I can promise you it was probably about an hour or so outside of Lubbock and those suckers were making the rounds through my digestive tract, never to be seen again. And it was glorious.

Now it’s your turn…slap on your favorite holiday movie (I’m going with National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and Home Alone right now), make the cookies, and get ready to put yourself in a sugar coma…mom and dad ain’t here to help you with this one!

Just don’t forget your gallon-sized plastic bag so you can eat the entire bag on the way to work take these to work and share with your friends.
