I usually know what's in my cuboards, or not, but these cookies came about because I didn't have enough brown sugar. Going to sub some honey failed too, when I only had a tiny amount. Sooooo, molasses....the rest is history. You need to refrigerate this dough several hours or overnight before rolling into balls.
