    Your molasses says fancy my recipe calls for cooking molasses I love ginger snaps do you have this cookie recipe and specify which type of molasses please thanks B.

      Hi Bev, Fancy molasses can be used in place of cooking molasses in your recipe. The molasses flavour will be milder and the cookies a little sweeter.
