I always remember my grandmother's gingersnap cookies. No one could make them like her then, and no one can make them like her now. When I was little, only 5 and 6 years old, I cherished the times I spent with my memere in her kitchen making her prized gingersnap cookies. She had what seemed to be an endless supply of patience with her only granddaughter who was more than eager to measure the flour and molasses, and even more excited to eat the raw dough. My favorite part was sprinkling the sugar on each little ball of dough, so the top of each cookie came out cracked and crunchy. I spent every Wednesday with her before I started school full time, and anytime we made cookies, I got some nice and warm from the oven, and plenty more to take home to my mom and share with her after a hard day at work. No one has her recipe anymore, and though I have made gingersnap cookies of my own since her passing, they are not the same. I only have the memories to remember my beloved cookies and precious time spent with my grandmother.

My grandma could not make cookies. They always were dry and hard. We threw them down the register.

IT WAS NICE TO HAVE MEMORIES OFYOUR GRANDMOTHER. I WASN'T AS FORTUNATE TO HAVE THE HONOR.

I wasn't as fortunate to have memories of my grandmother as some were.
