Kitchen Tips
You can choose how strong you want the molasses flavor of these cookies to be. Look for the lighter-colored mild-flavor molasses or the darker full-flavor molasses in the baking aisle of your grocery store.
Kitchen Tips
If the icing is too thick to drizzle, stir in additional milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until easy to drizzle.
