    L DJ's Note:

    Made to much mashed potatoes for supper, tired of having mashed potato cakes the next day.....then try this to use'em up. You'll be making extra potatoes just to make'em.

      Yum yum, what a great way to used up leftover mash! Made these with a bit more mash (because I had more)and 1/2 cup of coconut (because I ffelt like it). The mix was too thick to 'drop', but I spooned rounds onto a baking sheet, then squashed flat with a fork. They were delicious - spices were just right - and I'll definitely be making them again! A great change, as you say, from the usual uses for leftover mash.

      I'm not adding stars because my ingredients may have affected the result. I absolutely love molasses but it was completely overpowering in these cookies, to the point that no one would eat them and I ended up throwing them away. Recipe calls for no granulated sugar but 1 cup of molasses which is a lot. I use organic molasses which is very dark brown and may be more intense than other brands. Since other reviewers didn't report any problems, I suspect the issue may have been my molasses. I really wanted to love these cookies and may try them again with 1/2 cup organic molasses and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. The cookies were moist and cakey and didn't spread much on the greased sheets. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
