Molasses cookies were one of my favorites and just by reading your memories of those great tasting cookies made me look in my pantry for the ingredients. I'm going to make them today!!! Thanks..

They are good.  Sort of like a very strong sugar cookie/ginger bread cross. 
If I am not mistaken I think it is more of a New England cookie not common in other parts of the country.  I am sure someone will let me know if this is not correct.

Verlee....thanks for the recipe.  My Mom used to make these all the time.  I thought I had her recipe; but I could not find it.  She has been gone 26 years and I am anxious to bake them just for a memory.
