Thank you, Elizabeth. They look wonderful. There's a lot to be said for our grandmother's recipes! Put into my favorites for Christmastime.

That's almost the same recipe that I got from my best friend for her grandma's molasses cookies--haven't made them in ages, but now I want to make them!! Her recipe included some orange zest....and cardamon. Thanks for reminding me--I used to go spend weekends with my friend and her grandma and her grandma always had molasses cookies for us--and sent me home with a care package of the same. Hmmm...to whom can I send a care package...
