    Goji Girl's Note:

    No hockey pucks here - gingersnaps without the snap! Granted, if you like crispy cookies, simply bake a few minutes longer. I just made these tonight with my 20 month old, so the prep time is approximate - I'm sure it took us longer than usual. :) Prep time includes chill time. This is another of my mom's recipes, modified to make it slightly healthier. I hope you enjoy! We sure did, with a big glass of cold milk before DD's bedtime.

      This recipe gave me some VERY TASTY LITTLE MOLASSES BITES that are going quickly in a cookie & candy sale I'm holding during a park-wide garage sale! These little softies are definitely appreciated around here! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
