A spicy molasses cookie that tastes great with a glass of ice cold milk (or just dipped into a cup of hot coffee).

These are addictive little suckers! ;) My "normal" molasses cookies are soft and thicker .... these are a great change!! They go excellent with a nice fresh cup of coffee! Thanks for posting!!
