In our hometown bakery, they made the best-frosted molasses soft cookies. I loved them! Well, I wanted to try to make some of my own. A relative brought these to a family gathering. These cookies are so similar to the bakery cookies. I asked her for the recipe.

This cookie recipe is sweet and goes well with a hot beverage.
