    wife2abadge's Note:

    This was one of my favorite cookies growing up and now it's one of my daughter's favs. A nice moist cookie that tastes fantastic with butter/confectioner's sugar frosting.

      YUMMY, These are not typical cookies these are Cake Cookies. I made these late one evening was too lazy to make the frosting that night, so I only made one sheet of these cookies and put the rest in the frig, for the following evening when I made the frosting. These cookies absolutely need the frosting not because the cookies are not good without the frosting; it is just that much better with the frosting probably because they are a cake cookie. Only thing I did different was used black strap molasses, we love molasses if you do not use the light molasses. Loved these cookies. Thanks for posting.
