Soft Molasses Cookie Recipe; These Molasses bars are a cross between a chewy brownie and a soft molasses cookie. Recipe included.
That’s how long it took me to drain one entire bottle of molasses. Welcome to my world.
Remember this post about Molasses Snickerdoodles from 2 months ago? I’m pretty sure that’s when I bought this jar, because you can see it in the background of the pictures, all clean looking and full.
And then I made Gingerbread, Eggnog Bars, Chocolate Gingersnaps, and these Molasses bars, and let’s just say, some of my recipes get baked more than once, and before you know it, the molasses is gone.
And winter is only half over.
Who am I kidding? I live in Utah. Winter has barely begun. *sniff sniff*
You know what else has just begun? Christmas music. And hazy mornings. And shoveling snow and scraping the ice off the windshield.
And slippers, and cocoa, and adorable winter coats.
I took a plate of these bars to the church Christmas social, and after that experience, I made an important decision. I WILL be making these again. Most certainly.
But next time, I’m not sharing.
