These are my dad's favourite cookies. He says they remind him of the cookies his mom used to make. Chewy and delicious....they scream for an accompanying cold glass of milk or cup of tea. Enjoy!

These are wonderful little gems. I love a good molasses cookie and this fits the bill. The only thing I did different according to your recipe is used only 1/2 stick of butter. They turned out perfect. Glad I tagged this recipe for Camera-less Chef's = June 08 photo challenge~~
