Cry Baby Molasses Cookies

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by MinnMomof2

Again another one of my Grandma Clark's recipes our family LOVES. It is at almost every family gathering. I have used 'store bought' icing before and it works OK but I prefer to make my own powdered sugar icing. This is a LARGE recipe and my servings are a guess as my family eats the cookies before I can count. I often half this recipe to make a more manageable number of cookies.

These cookies turned out awesome. I followed directions except I only used 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 tbsp milk for the icing and it was the perfect amount.
