Would you refrigerate them because of the cream??
You can but that is not necessary with these cookies.
These are amazing! Made them
Dairy free for my son and they still came out perfect!!
What fan replace molasses please–I live in Switzerland & I don’ t havé this product here, Help please.
I always use this as a replacement for molasses:
(Makes: 1 cup)
1 cup dark corn syrup, honey or maple syrup
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
These substitutions may alter the taste of your recipe a bit. If the molasses flavor is vital to the success of your recipe, try the brown sugar substitute.
Since brown sugar is made from granulated sugar and molasses, it’ll be the closest flavor match. The maple syrup or dark corn syrup would be the next best choice.
If you have to use granulated sugar or honey as the substitute, consider increasing the spices in the recipe a bit to make up for the flavors that the molasses would have contributed.
oh yummy! This is right up my alley!
