Warm Molasses Cookie: VIRTUAL COOKIE SWAP

Of course since this is my blog I’m greedy and always list my own cookies as the 1st one in my virtual cookie swap. This recipe for a Warm Molasses Cookie came from my mother – she’s been using it since before I was born. It makes the tastiest gingerbread. Happy Baking, I hope you enjoy this as much as my family.

Heat molasses to boiling point and remove from heat
Add dairy free margarine and brown sugar
Stir until butter melts
Add baking soda and stir well
Pour over flour-spice mixture, stirring well
