Dan had a craving for these cookies so I went out and bought the molasses. I wasn't in a rush to make them so the molasses sat in the cupboard for about two months. Seriously, do not let your molasses sit in your cupboard any longer..these cookies are AMAZING! so soft and chewy, and delightfully delectable! Make them today, you will be so happy you did!
