BACKGROUND: Mollie Blustein Ingber
was born on Rivard Street in Detroit
over her maternal grandfather's store,
DeRoven's Sugar and Feed. She grew up
on the northwest side and attended

Roosevelt, Durfee and Central High
School.
When she was 16 years old, she met
Abe Ingber. These high school
sweethearts married in 1942. As
newlyweds, they moved to Ann Arbor
because Abe's father, Jacob, started a
business there in the hopes that his
children would receive a better
education near the university.
As a young bride, Mollie began to
cook. She loved cooking and was
inspired by her mother-in-law, who was
an excellent baker.
While raising three children, she
became very active in volunteer work in
thd Ann Arbor area. In Hadassah, she
was the membership chairman and
organized many charity bake sales for
the Jewish community. "I baked enough
for 10 people, and I loved it." She was
also involved with her synagogue, Beth
Israel Congregation.
In later years, Mollie began giving
Jewish cookery lessons. Most of her
pupils were professors' wives. She
decided to write a cookbook and donate
the profits to the new building of Beth
Israel, and to cancer and heart funds.
"Also, I wanted to leave something of
myself to my grandchildren."
Her self-published cookbook, "Why
Don't You Write a Cook?" is no longer
in print. "I've had four printings of my
book and have been asked to reprint my
book again, but I'm interested in other
things now."
Her project for the last six years has
been baking for Zingerman's. "I really
enjoy it." Her delicious desserts —
carrot cakes, cheesecakes and mousse
cakes — are well-known. People on the
streets of Ann Arbor refer to her as the
"Cookie Lady." Her cookie specialties
are a ginger molasses snap and
oatmeal-chocolate-chip-raisin-nut. When
she is not baking for Zingerman's, she
gives private baking lessons for young
brides.
Mollie Ingber is very content as
mother, wife and baker. She is proud of
the fact that all her children married
Jews. "I've been blessed. I have no
problem family."
