The best soft molasses cookie I've ever eaten! You may substitute 3/4 cup undiluted evaporated milk with 3/4 tablespoon vinegar for the sour cream. Cookies can be iced with a mixture of confectioners' sugar and milk, or just sprinkled with confectioners' sugar.

These cookies were amazing. I made a few changes based on some other reviews... increased cinnamin to 2 tsp and increased the molasses to 1/2 c. Also used 1/2 c. white and 1/2 c. br sugar. The resulting cookie was soft, had excellent flavor and tasted great iced with caramel frosting.

Great Recipe, I agree with changing the 1 tsp of Cinnamon to 2 tsp, much more flavor and I used just under 1/2 cup of molasses. Becel Margarine rather than butter. Very soft, chewy and delicious cookies
