Made these using the brown sugar & they're great, & as much as I like chocolaty things, these were a very nice change of pace! Shared them with a neighbor couple & it was unanimous ~ 5 stars! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

I used molasses. I baked the cookies 10 minutes. And then let them rest on the cooking sheet for 2 minutes and removed them on a rack to cool. They have a great texture. The taste is so good. Thanks Lynn :) Made for PRMR tag game
