Grandma's Molasses Cookies

Last year I shared our traditional Christmas cookie, so this year I thought I would share one cookie that was my favorite as a kid, but that I kind of forgot about until I was flipping through my grandma and great aunt's cookbook.

My grandma's molasses cookie recipe is much easier and even more delicious than I remember. I have already made them twice this Christmas season. The key, however, is to under bake them - you want them soft and decadent. If you bake them for too long they get hard quickly.
