Awesome cookies!!

Jen from Tallahassee, Fl

We had some leftover molasses that we needed to use up, so I made these cookies for the Christmas season. What a surprise! They were sooo yummy! The wal nut pieces on the outside gave them the perfect amount of crunch.

    Easy to make!

    Dawn Best from MANTECA, CA

    I really like the taste of molasses and ginger, so these were very good. Easy to make, bake and even easier to eat! I omitted the nuts on the outside because some of my relatives cannot eat nuts and they were delicious without them.

    Molasses Spice cookies

    DOTTIE TREASE from DIXON, KY

    I just love these cookies, but then again I love any thing that has molasses in it. I made these for my grandson and he just loved them. Now when ever he comes over he wants his moasses ice ooies (but then again he only three years old.)

    A Big Hit!

    MaryAnn Haut from TN

    I made these and took them to my weekly Bible Study group. They were so impressed they want me to bring the recipe to them! It actually made more that the recipe called for so I had enough to send to my son who lives in Orlando to have a "little bit of home". They are totally scrumptious!

    Old fashioned taste

    Jewell Kurtz from HAVILAND, OH

    I made these cookies for my husband since his mom used to and is no longer with us. He says they taste the same. They stay moist. I didn't use the chips or the nuts (his preferences) and I rolled the dough in sugar before baking. This recipe is adaptable and very good.

    I divided my recipe and added the white morsels to half, and golden raisins to the other half. We liked them both but the raisins give them extra moistness.

    Brothers Birthday gift

    cheryl bryan from Millbrae, CA

    When I asked my family what dessert they would like my brother said something spicey with ginger. So I searched for ginger, spice. This was one of the many recipes that came up. I was actually going to make Chi Tea Chewies bt was out of brown sugar, so I make this instead. They were a big hit, he loved them along with everyone eles.

    EXCELLENT

    Jennifer Evans from Pullman, WA

    These cookies were excellent!! They were a great change of pace from the usual chocolate chip cookies I make. I didn't add the nuts because I don't like nuts in cookies, and they were wonderful!! I will definitely make these again!!

    Molasses Spice Cookies

    Chris Adams from ENGLEWOOD, FL

    I made these cookies to satisfy my husbands desire for a spicy good cookie. He just raved about them. There are a lot of ingredients but well worth the flavor. The nice surprise is the smooth taste of the white chocolate morsels and the fine crunch of the walnuts. These are now his favorite along with the old stand-by Nestles Chocolate Chip Cookies. There are times you want something new and then there are those times you just want the best.

    Amanda McGruder from OMAHA, NE

    Great alternative to standard gingerbread cookies!

    Suzanne Smith from ALPHARETTA, GA

    I was told I make the same cookies year after year and that I should try something new. Well, I tried these and loved them! It was just like having gingerbread cookies, but with a twist! I couldn't put the white chips in as my son has dairy allergies so we just used the nuts. I think I will try them with raisins next as some have mentioned. This is definitely a recipe to keep and share with the rest of my family!

    These Cookies Are Great

    jacqueline harvey from WEST RICHLAND, WA

    Next time I make these I am going to try substituting wheat flour for part of the AP and raisins for the chips. The spice level is A-OK in my book and won't be alterred, though.

    deelicious

    Timothy Riley from BEACH PARK, IL

    I love the taste and the ease of this recipe, but I had one problem. The cookies came out a little too dark, and stuck a little. I sprayed cooking spray on the sheets, and used the right oven temp. Maybe a problem with an ingredient. It was nice and made the house smell real good.

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy I give these cookies a High 5!

    Deanna McGinnis from RIVERSIDE, CA

    These are my favorite to make and to eat. My whole family eats them all up I cant seem to make enough they seem to disappear within an hour after making them. They are fun and just so simple to make. I recommend tripling the recipe cause they just won't last long . They are just so yummy.

    I made these cookies for the first time Tuesday because I had a few friends coming over for coffee and catch-up. I wanted to have a little something to go with the coffee. After making them, I tried one to make sure I didn't goof anything up with the recipe. I thought they were good but when everyone asked for the recipe I knew I hit upon a good thing. Thanks!!!!

    If you like the old fashioned taste of a molasses cookie, be sure and try this one. The right amount of spices makes it just very flavorful. A good winter cookie.

    My Favorite kind of cookie!

    Barbara Barthelette from Rialto, CA

    For a slight change of pace, I like to grind a quarter cup of raisins with some lemon zest and add it to the dough. It doesn't make a HUGE difference, just that 'something' different that makes people reach for a second . . . and a third!
