    I made my molasses cookies from the recipe on the jar and they are delicious. I’m surprised it’s not on here.

    My dough was perfect. Mine came out puffy cake like. I also threw in nuts raisins and chocolate chips. Myself and my kids are enjoying them now.

    I just put together crinkle cookie dough as stated on the original Grandma’s Molasses jar. After chilling dough for an hour, it’s still so sticky that I can’t form it into balls. Any suggestions?

      Betty, Sorry for the delay with this response, but it sounds like you may not have had enough flour. The dough should be a little sticky after being in the fridge, but not so that it sticks to your hands, completely. Maybe you have tried them again and had success. Let me know if you were able to get the correct result, good cookies.
