    Awful - I think the recipe should be 1/4 cup molasses - not 1 cup. Mine came out the colour of dark chocolate, not pale brown like the photo. Also, the ground cloves was omitted from the Directions.  -  29 Jun 2016


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