No Cake for the Birthday Boy. Soft Molasses Cookies on the Way!
May 17, 2016 6:28pm CST
Tomorrow is my baby brother's birthday. A few weeks ago he said he had a hankering for some old fashioned soft molasses cookies. In years past I have made rice pudding, peanut butter cookies, or some other sweet that he really enjoys. This year, it is molasses cookies. There was a favorite recipe that I had used about 30 years ago. The cookies were soft and full of molasses flavor. I baked them at Christmas and other occasions and they were a favorite! Somehow, I lost the recipe. It was a recipe that I found in a magazine. I should have written it down and kept it in a file folder. The recipe is long lost. One day a client had me looking at her collection of recipes and said she wanted me to have them. That night I went through the recipes and was delighted to find a recipe for soft molasses cookies that reminded me of the recipe I had lost. So, tonight, I am off to the kitchen to whip up a batch of soft molasses cookies for my brother. It will be a surprise for him.

After looking at it again, I am not 100% sure it is the right one. This one says you need to roll them out and use cookie cutters. The recipe I used just had you scoop it out by teaspoonfuls and place them on a cookie sheet. Nothing on the internet I have found does this either.
