    Really curious as to why these are called ginger bread… as I can’t seem to find one recipe with everything I want, I’m going to use yours and add to it. 🙂

    Just looking at this recipe, I am wondering why these are called “gingerbread” when there is no ginger in them?

      haha, good point! The molasses indicates a “gingerbread” flavor, I guess.

    Hi Lori,
    I thought they turned out very moist, but why no spices? I thought they needed something to kick it up a little. I added walnuts and raisins also. Thank you for sharing

    I just realized I misread the recipe and used 1/2 cup of butter instead of 2 cups. They turned out great and I definitely would use 1/2 cup of butter again.
