    These cookies taste just like Christmas! They remind me a bit of Jamaican Ginger Cake. I only used 300g of chocolate chips as 675g seemed like a lot. I also added half a tsp of ground nutmeg. The recipe misses out the ground cloves in the method section, so don't forget to add it with the other spices!  -  22 Dec 2013


    The chocolate chips are a tasty surprise in this molasses cookie. Real easy to make.  -  05 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was apprehensive about the ingredients in this recipe. No egg for one, lots of molasses, and the looks were not that appealing as I was mixing up the dough. Glad that I made it as it is very good, very easy, and has a wonderful flavor. Thanks for sharing! I will be making this again and again. My husband thanks you also.  -  05 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
