Mother put in an order for molasses cookies that could be rolled out and cut into crescent moon cookies. Think this recipe just might fit the bill.pointsevenout in Athens loved it
This is not a standard dense cookie with a lot of sweet. It is more cake like. Good flavor but does not invoke my Pavlov response. These are going to the senior center today.
