Three molasses cookie recipes later. Could this really be “the one”?
Yes!! This is the one.
I’ve posted three other molasses cookie recipes here at The Joy of Caking and each of the cookies are all very good. Each cookie has a distinct texture, and all are equally tasty, but this new recipe is (currently) my all-time favorite.
Check out these recipes and photo’s to see which cookie get’s your undivided attention.
I’ve never denied being fickle where cookie recipes are concerned – just in case you’re wondering.
