I am so disappointed! I was living in country that didn't have brown sugar and I thought I invented this recipe:( Obviously, I was not the genius I thought I was but just probably read it somewhere. Thanks so much for sharing and giving me the right amounts (I think I was too heavy on the molasses in the past). This is a great way to save money and my husband's co-workers swore that the cookies I baked using this combination tasted better that those using "real" brown sugar. Thanks!
