These are a wonderful molasses cookie & the vanilla frosting is so smooth and creamy! They have been a family favorite for years!:-) Ooh, they freeze well too.

The frosting on these molasses cookies makes them oustanding! I like molasses cookies anyway, and I absolutely loved these! They were soft and tender, and very easy to put together. Thanks for posting such a good recipe!
