Molasses Cookies

One of my favorite cookie recipes, other than our Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are these Molasses Cookies.  I like them because they are soft, moist and chewy…and they taste so good.


I prefer mine without the cream cheese icing drizzle, but my kids love the icing drizzle and it does make it pretty for a party if you are going to be serving them up to your guests or friends and family.
