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.
