Karla's notes for this recipe:
When we had been married 10 years my husband asked me why I never made his favorite cookie. I said it was probably because I didn't know what it was. He answered Soft Molasses. I then went on "the hunt" for a cookie to please my husband. Finding several recipes, I have combined, deleted, added...developing my own. This is the cookie we have settled on. This summer we celebrate our 40th Anniversary.
