Making Ginger Cookies
Most women of my age owned an apron, and many even owned an apron like this: handmade and hand decorated. In addition, they probably owned either a measuring cup like this or one made of Pyrex. When I was younger, all my important recipes were handwritten on cards like this. Today, some are so faded that they are hard to read. This one is for a favorite ginger cookie from Nana, my then-husband's grandmother. She carefully pointed out that she hadn't invented it. She got the recipe from a Mrs. Senty. So Mrs. Senty--whom I never met--has been enshrined in my family history.
