    It is wonderful to find the recipe for Marshland”s Inn Gingersnap cookies on this website. They are so good. The Inn also makes wonderful molasses brown bread. Do you think that you could get that recipe too? I would love to give it a try!

    1. Hi Leslie, I do have their recipe for Marshlands Inn brown bread. You have my mom to thank — Years ago she clipped a recipe feature out of Homemaker Magazine that included a few of the Inn’s recipes. I’ll send the brown bread recipe via email.
