These are delicious and the dough is easy to make. However this is the stickiest dough ever! I finally figured out that I needed to roll the dough right on the parchment paper cut out the cookies and remove the scraps because the dough was too sticky to be transferred. Makes a ton of cookies so good for a cookie exchange if you're willing to do the work. Read More

We didn't like these cookies even a little bit! Made the dough. You better be a REAL molasses lover for this one. Read More
