      If you like molasses cookies, these are the ones to try. I have an elderly friend who I make these for quite often as they are his favorite cookie. I use all white sugar and a lot of times substitute all-spice for the cloves since I'm not crazy about cloves. I also roll the whole cookie in sugar, not just the top. I store them in a cookie tin and they stay nice and soft. YUM!
