Okay I am going to state up front that no pumpkins were harmed in the making of this recipe. I was halfway through making this recipe when I stopped and double checked because I had not pulled any pumpkin out of the pantry. Where's the pumpkin in these pumpkin spice cookies? There's not any so if you want to call them molasses spice cookies that is fine with me. I wanted to make these because I had some fresh homemade molasses to try. I have never had any homemade before. It didn't disappoint. It was very good. If you live close to me and would like to purchase some for yourself let me know and I will put you in touch with the person that sells it.
This cookie calls for both salted and unsalted butter. I keep a little unsalted in the freezer for times just like this. Land of Lakes sells half sticks of butter and that is what I have in the salted.
Dig in. Taste like fall to me.
