When our package arrived in the mail yesterday evening my daughter could not wait to make the cookies. She kept asking what molasses was, but was very excited to try them. We made them today after lunch.
I loved that the added ingredients were very basic ingredients - a stick of butter, water, and an egg. I also liked that when I checked the ingredient list it listed that the product may contain milk, eggs, or soy. There was no mention of nuts which would make these safe to take to a peanut free environment (check your package to be sure they all have the same warnings).
It was extremely easy to make these. I used softened butter (sat on the counter for about 90 minutes), one egg, and 1 T of water. All of the ingredients get added at the same time. I typically bake from scratch, so it was much easier than hauling out all of my ingredients and making sure I had enough of everything and then adding everything in the proper order. Even better, the only measuring device I needed to use was a tablespoon measuring spoon so there were no measuring cups to clean. I have a KitchenAid mixer that I used to make them, although it seemed like it would be pretty easy to do by hand. If I was going to use my mixer to make these again I think I would try using the dough hook instead of the beater.
