Ginger Cookies

This page of the Girl’s Trade School book fell apart as I was handling it, much to my dismay. You can see the bottom edge lost a big chunk out of it. The way the recipe starts out is so charming to me. “You take 1 cup…” sounds a lot like a lady I used to know and how she would speak. I can imagine her dictating this recipe to a daughter-in-law while the two of them were in the kitchen and cooking at the holidays.
