Molasses (Lassie) buns
By Leanna Loomer oldawnie
I brought this recipe home from Newfoundland, where my family was vacationing. It's a very robust soft cookie (not really buns) recipe and reflects the robust life on the big island.
It is especially good eaten warm right out of the oven, but keeps well. Great for the winter holidays (lots of spice). If you like ginger snaps, you'll like these.

These sound wonderful, Leanna. I can't believe how easy and simple either. Thanks!

Thank you both! They are quick to make. I put down Medium rather than Easy because I do not enjoy cutting hard butter into flour.
I notice there are a couple of other soft molasses cookie recipes featured here right now. Just think of this as the Canadian version.
