Reviews forMolasses Cookie Mix
"What a delicious recipe this is. I have given it to coworkers and even made them myself and we all agree they are a great cookie we could make and eat over and over again."
"I've made this recipe 4 times since I found it last November (2012). My husband loves it when I make these. I usually have to make a double batch just for him, a triple if I want any."
"This is a very tasty cookie, and brings back memories from yesteryear. Good all through the year not just the holidays."
