Yum. Molasses is such an old-fashioned ingredient. I love soft molasses cookies, gingerbread, and even a spoonful directly from the jar. Your meal must have been super!

That sounds awesome..I wonder if you could switch Grade A Maple syrup for the cream your butter by hand (I do) or like my mom with a mixer? Wonder if it makes a difference..

Sounds yummy. Too bad I'm trying not to eat those things. Dieting sucks.
