these are some of my favorite candies. Call me crazy, I love the molasses.
Well, when I ran across this recipe and saw that it called for a 1/2 cup of molasses, I knew I would love it. The fact that it has pumpkin in it makes it a perfect Thanksgiving day recipe. Imagine how great it would be to have this sliced and ready for snacking before the big meal. I don't know about you, but whenever I set a time for the Thanksgiving meal, I'm never ready on time. So, this is a great appetizer for all those hungry guests. Well, and it distracts them and buys you some time. Win-Win!
My husband tried it and said, 'it has a good aftertaste'. That guy and his good aftertaste. I don't know about him. Truly, it does have an excellent aftertaste, so you're tastebuds are in for a treat.
I found this recipe on Simply Recipes so, I will send you there for the recipe. I didn't have the fresh/crystalized ginger, so I left it out and I added fresh cranberries in place of the raisins. It was amazing with the cranberries. Added a little punch of tartness. Here's a link to the recipe!
Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
