Since it's the holidays, I went ahead and did the glaze and a little bit of sprinkles! These cookies are like soft ginger cookies, very good. I had an open can of pumpkin puree and used that instead of applesauce. Very good!
These cookies are delicious. I use a little bit less of brown sugar. I didn't do the glaze. They're delicious without it. My son usually doesn't like molasses cookies but he liked these cookies. I used only all purpose flour. Thanks Ellie :) Made for PRMR tag game
