      Here is a simple recipe to make your own Crackle Top Molasses Cookies. You might even want to call them a copycat gingersnap cookie, but these taste better. Where a Gingersnap cookies might be crisp and crunchy, the texture can sometimes be hard. These cookies are crisp and crunchy as well as light and airy. They almost turn to powder while eating them but they have that gingersnap flavor. There aren’t many things I use molasses for in our household but this cookie recipe is definitely why I keep it in the cupboard at all times.

      Re: How to hang necklaces, rings and jewelry.

      Hang a bit of ribbon from a tack and put the earrings through it, or put a saucer where you remove them - saucer works for rings too.
