You can treat yourself to one or two of my crackle cookies without guilt. Most molasses cookies are loaded with butter and have way too much sugar, but not mine. You would never know these are so low in fat.— Jean L. Ecos, Hartland, Wisconsin

"I love crinkle cookies, but these had a weird texture (probably the white whole wheat flour) and I found them overly sweet. I'll stick with my Nonnie's recipe."

"Ran across this recipe looking for low sugar desserts for diabetic spouse. They were so good - enjoyed by all family members. Did not miss all that sugar ( in fact, reduced to 1/2 cup) and flavor enormous. Skipped confectioners ' sugar."
