  1. This sounds wonderful, I must make them soon. We're finishing off a batch of chocolate chip right now and I'm really craving gingerbread, but these will go on the list.

  2. Ah... gingerbread. I think that might be my favorite. My husband is the peanut butter fan and loves these. Hope you enjoy!

  3. I threw in a little honey to sweeten them up, but they turned out AMAZING. Soft and chewy with a great flavor. I couldn't taste a lot of the peanut butter but they were still great, nice smokey molasses flavor throughout. Truly only use a teaspoon to measure out the cookies, they are pretty thick. Also be sure to flatten them as they do not puff or spread out on their own and you will end up with a little molasses cookie ball. :)

  4. I am so glad to hear you liked them!
