  1. Oh I’m so excited to try these. I have had molasses sitting in the cupboard for a very, VERY long time wondering what in the world I was going to do with it, and so it just continues to sit there. Well, now I have a use and I will let you know how I like them. Thanks so very much.

  2. The scent alone is worth baking these cookies! My neighbors have come over just to see what that heavenly smell is!! They make a beautiful gift for friends and neighbors on a simple seasonal paper plate too. The best part (aside from pleasure-bound taste-buds, heavenly scent and the “chewy” factor, you ask?) is all the “oohs” and “ahhs” I get for such a simple recipe. This is so in tune with the season that no one can miss how much they wish they could have done it first!! Hehehe!!!
