Recipe by knobbyknee

This recipe is from my sister in law. She had them at her house one day and I could not stop eating them! Enjoy! I have not made these yet, so the servings and yield could be way off. If you make them, please let me know how many it makes!

Top Review by Crocheting Mama

I am not going to give a rating, just a review, for the following reasons: 1. The instructions don't say where to add the molasses so I added it with the liquids in step 2. 2. The dough ended up extremely runny, so I added 1 cup flour to get it firm enough to roll it (it was still very wet). The extra flour may be why they were cakey instead of chewy. I expected chewy, so I wasn't as happy with cakey, but they ended up being good too. It made exactly 36 cookies using a melon baller (1.5 or 2 inch I think). I probably wouldn't use this recipe again if I wanted chewy cookies, but if I want to recreate cakey cookies, I'd do exactly what I did this time, maybe with some additional spices and sugar because of the additional flour.
