I made this recipe tonight- so yummy! Made 2 batches- one plain and the other I added 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips. Really tasty addition! Rolled in turbinado sugar. Y'all definitely try this recipe!
Question: When it says black molasses -- is that blackstrap molasses?
I'm assuming that's what she meant, bobwonderbuns. However, I did not have blackstrap so I used what I had on hand which was just sorghum molasses. Not sure how that altered the taste compared to using blackstrap but I can tell you they were delish!!
Are these a soft cookie? I've really been looking for a delicious soft molasses cookie.
