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! So, try'em sometime, you'll love them!

  3. Once your dough is thoroughly combined, put in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. Next grease your cookie sheet, and then get a bowl to put your white sugar in. Roll your dough into balls, then roll them in your bowl of sugar. When you have all your cookies on the cookie sheet, bake for 13 minutes.
  5. Then enjoy, I know we will!
