The kitchen smells so good when Mom is baking these yummy cookies, which we like to make with sorghum. They're chewy and tender, with a sugary coating. It's hard to eat just one!
These spicy, old-fashioned treats are sure to be a hit with your family and friends. For holiday gift giving, I put a batch of this cookie mix in an attractive basket along with the recipe and a festive tea towel. —Barbara Stewart, Portland, Connecticut
These old-fashioned mildly sweet cookies are dotted with walnuts and raisins. We like them soft right from the oven. Later, they crisp up and are perfect for dunking.—Denise and George Hymel, Gramercy, Louisiana
I've tried a lot of molasses cookies since I was a girl on the farm, and as far as I'm concerned, these are simply the best.
To keep them soft and chewy, store in a tightly covered container along with a slice of raw apple. These cookies freeze beautifully, too...if you can keep them away from "snitchers" long enough to get them in the freezer!
