Molasses Cookies

I know, I know.  It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything here.  I’d love to make excuses for myself (cough morning sickness cough) but I won’t bore you with the details.

Instead I’ll just say I’m sorry and refrain from making empty promises to post more often.  You’ll get recipes when you get them.  Also, you’ll get updated photos on older posts when I feel like it, too.  It’s a busy time of year, guys!

Speaking of the time of year… I’m starting my holiday baking this week and wanted to share a recipe for one of my favorite cookies: Molasses Cookies.  They’re sweet and delicious and yum.  Oh, and they’re pretty easy, too.  I don’t mess around with complicated cookies too often.
