Molasses Nutty Bars

Pat Duran


My grandma and I used to make these cookies when I would go to stay at her house in the city for a week in the summer. They were so good, especially when we would make them together. I got to grease the pan, grate the orange, chop the nuts and break the eggs in the bowl.
