This recipe originally came from my grandmother but I have altered it a bit to add my favorite: chocolate chips. They are not a traditional molasses cookie so even people who don't enjoy molasses like these cookies.—Mellowdee Jae Brooks, Moscow, Idaho

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 23, 2013

Cookies doesn't have any chocolate flavor at all. Even while they were being baked in the oven, I couldn't smell any cookies like I usually do when baking cookies. Sure enough, the baked cookies doesn't taste like any of the chocolate chip cookies at all, all they taste like was sugarly & molassesy sweetness, but without a hint of chocolate flavor. I would say they were horrible, but for someone that enjoy fake sugarly sweet stuff, this might be up their alley

This recipe was great! We had some friends over and we were playing games while I baked these cookies. I could barely get them out of the oven before they were all eaten!! I added some nutmeg and ginger to add some spice to my batch and it tasted great!
