I have made two batches of these heavenly delights and am now going to make batch three. These are the most delicious cookies I have ever had in my 73 years! If I were the judge I would have given these cookies the Grand Prize. I made all the winners and my family and friends voted Orange Spice Molasses cookies #1.

These spiced molasses cookies have added applesauce to help keep the cookies moist and whole-wheat flour and oats to incorporate whole grains.

WoW! What a wonderful combination of spicy molasses and orange zest. This is a great variation on the standard molasses cookie. It looked super on my plate of Christmas cookies, and tasted so much like a holiday treat.
I baked the first batch to send to my grandchildren. We all had to taste them as I had never made them before. Welllllllllll we ate the entire batch. These cookies are fabulous and the flavor of the orange rind is heavenly. I am now baking batch two and hope my family doesn't discover them before I have a chance to mail them.
Delicious!!!! Easy to make and will definitely be a new addition to my holiday baking. I will make them smaller next time for my cookies trays to people can sample more than one cookie!
These do take a bit of work, but are well worth it! I added a bit of cinnamon to the rolling sugar. Delicious!
