Granny's Molasses Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by um-um-good

Whenever we went to my granny's for afternoon tea we knew we would be served these. These are nice and chewy. These have very similar ingredients to other molasses cookies recipes posted-the exception is the addition of maple flavouring and vanilla which i think make a nice addition! I'm a huge oatmeal/chocolate chip cookie fan but have to admit that these are a nice change from the everyday cookie, I hope you do too. (Don't overcook-unless you like crispy cookies).

These are great! They remind me of these cookies my mom would buy when I was a kid. Yum! Thanks!
