However, I'm excited about two things.

1. Persephone Books "prints mainly neglected fiction and non-fiction by women, for women and about women."

2. I've been making cookies every day for the past three. Here's the recipe for the batch I made today.

Ginger Molasses Cookies, from The Village Baker's Wife

Melt 3/4 C butter. Add it to 1 C sugar, 1 egg, 1/4 molasses, and 1 t vanilla.

Combine 2 t baking soda, 2 C flour, 1/2 t ground cloves, 1 t ground ginger, and 2 t cinnamon with a good pinch of salt. Add this to the molasses mixture. Refrigerate the whole thing for fifteen minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 and add 1/4 sugar (I used confectioner's) to a shallow bowl. Pinch off bits of the dough, roll them into balls, and roll the balls in the sugar. The village baker's wife says one can get 50 cookies from this recipe, but I got exactly 16, so your mileage may vary depending on how large you like your cookies.

Bake for 8-10 minutes.


I made chocolate cookies yesterday, and oatmeal raisin the day before. These spice cookies are my favorite yet. Yum.
