Yum! These are the childhood treats of every east coaster. Molasses, dates, tea biscuits and cinnamon rolls. Grandma used to make them for use
every time we visited with extras for the road back east. Great memories.
Not just your everyday molasses cookies. These are rolled out with a rolling pin and cut. They are soft, fat and spicy with cloves, cinnamon and ginger.
There is nothing quite like a baking powder cinnamon roll. Unlike it's cousin the yeast roll, this one is dense, heavy and amazing warmed up and served with piping hot tea.
This recipe if from Mrs. McInnes who lived on the shores of Big Bras'dor. We've been making it since we opened the shop in 1988.
Nova Scotia Oat Cakes
Our most famous snack, the oatcake. Delicious. Their crunchy, healthy and awesome with just about anything - cheese or with butter and jam. We run out of oatcakes every day!
Date Filled Oatmeal Turnovers
These are a favourite and I bet you won't be able to stop at one. A hearty oatmeal cookie folded around a rich date filling. These soft cookies are a treat anytime. I'd even venture to say that they
they are pretty good for you too.
Whether your having hamburger stew or corned beef and cabbage or, your favourite soup; tea biscuits are a must. Come to think of it, they're pretty good split, buttered with home made strawberry jam too.
