Got the recipe from a friend and I absolutely LOVE it. The cookies have just enough spice flavor and are soft and chewy. The cranberries and raw sugar make them super festive! Wrapped in a clear bag and tied with a red ribbon, they make a great small gift to give.

I made this recipe for the first time last week and the cookies were gone the same day! Since then I've made it 4 more times and shared the cookies with several people. One person told me it was the best cookie he'd ever eaten. This is easily a five star recipe and one of my all time favorites. It is easy to make and tastes delicious.

I made the molasses cranberry crinkle cookies, and they were too moist to roll into balls and then into the sugar. Can you check your recipe and make sure an ingredient might be missing?

Love the new way of showing the Nutrition facts instead of them being in very small print at the bottom of the page.
