    Yummy! Some of the best molasses cookies I've made. I followed the recipe exactly and per other reviews, I topped a few cookies with melted white chocolate. The cookies were very good and the only thing I would do differently is DOUBLE the batch, so that there are more to enjoy!

    Wow! This cookie is a keeper at our house. It has the soft texture we love, great flavor and it's easy to make. I used just 1 tsp. ground cloves instead of 2.

    I thought these were just ok, but my DH loved them so Am giving 5 stars! He loves a soft cookie and he thought these were perfect. I snapped a pic with a spritz of whip cream but for serving I drizzled white chocolate over them. This made DH like them even more.
