Molasses Crinkles

We made these cookies a few nights ago and we’re still enjoying them. They were easy to make and definitely taste like the holidays. The only “issue” that we had was that Dino was rolling them a lot larger than I was, so it didn’t even make half of the number of cookies that it was supposed to. It’s always fun to try to navigate the tiny kitchen with a helper though, so it was worth it.
