This recipe, from Gluten Free Girl & The Chef
blogger Shauna Ahern, appeared in our 2012 Cookie Advent Calendar
. Shauna says: "Every year when my mother made her pillow-soft molasses cookies, I just sighed with happiness at the holidays. But by the time she was ready to hand over the baking, I could no longer eat gluten, and she couldn't find that recipe. So I fiddled and baked until I came up with these."
