Iced Molasses Cookies are chewy, moist and delicious! Perfect for company and parties or to eat all yourself.
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.
