Not Molasses Cookies

We were first introduced to these cookies when Dan’s little brother’s girlfriend sent them to him for Christmas.  We immediately thought that they were molasses cookies but were corrected when I asked Kristen for the recipe to put up for the bake sale for Haiti.  Either way we thought they were delicious.  I hope Jan liked these!
