This is my good friend Debbie's molasses cookie recipe. They are wonderful, soft and puffy. Perfect fresh out of the oven with a nice cold glass of milk! I am guessing at the times and servings!

  2. Beat in eggs.
  3. Mix together dry ingredients.

I tried this again. There is no way these could be rolled out. I even added an extra cup of flour, and the batter was still too thin to roll out. I spooned onto a pan and baked per instructions. They tasted pretty good, dusted with powdered sugar.

These are great Molasses cookies! My niece and nephew really loved them and I did too! Wonderful smell while they were baking and they have the perfect texture and taste! This is the recipe I will use from now on! Thanks.
