5. Molasses Drop Cookies

"While going through family recipes one day I happened upon these cookies. Having never tasted them or seen them, I was curious at how they would taste. For some reason, I imagined a hard, spicy cookie. I made a couple of tweaks and what I got was an extra soft, pillowy, nicely flavored cookie. I'm so glad I had that jar of molasses in my pantry or else I might not have been apt to make these and I would have missed out. Even my husband, who didn't want to try one at first likes them. They've really been a surprise winner out of all of the cookies I've been making a lot." —Maeghan L. of Way to His Heart
