Instead of making the same old traditional chocolate chip cookies, I thought I'd try baking some molasses cookies. I've never made them before, so I was a little weary at first because of the name. But boy was I wrong, These cookies are awesome!

Soft, crinkle-coated with sugar, and spicy, these old-fashioned cookies are delightful.



In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Store the mix in an airtight container.

If you want to give this mix as a gift, attach the following instructions to the jar:
