The holidays are upon us once again, and one thing all winter holidays seem to have in common is food, glorious food. The temptation to overindulge is strong this time of year, but as we celebrate, it’s wise to heed to words of the ancient Greek poet, Hesiod, and remember, “Moderation is best in all things” (even during this festive time of year).
This week’s recipe for Moravian Brown Sugar Cookies is likely to challenge your resolve, but hey, it’s the holidays. Blackstrap molasses is a crucial ingredient in this recipe and it has health benefits of its own. The recipe was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody. She has been sharing her extensive collection of favorite recipes with friends, family, and the CCSA team as a means of maintaining connections during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Everything in moderation, including moderation.”
