Tammy's Review: 

These spicy molasses cookies go great with a glass of milk. My mom has made these for years, and they are one of Joshua's favorites. Definitely a delicious winter cookie treat! My rating: 10/10


Hmm mine are not brown like yours, not even close! Is there some missing molasses maybe? Or maybe the type I used is different, we used black strap molasses. Mmmmm:) Tastes a lot like gingerbread!
