Old Fashioned Molasses Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by startnover

These are basically a soft ginger snap. I made them for my 8 year olds class and they were fighting over the extras. I also made them for a very sweet older friend who said she hadn't tasted these since her mother made them when she was little, They make a ton and stay fresh for quite awhile. This works perfectly for Christmas or large amounts of company!
