What Are Pomegranate Molasses Cookies?

These cookies are similar in texture to oat and coconut oatmeal cookies. The cookie dough is creamy and sweet, and the finished product will remind you of oatmeal raisin cookies with a slight tang.

The ingredients used in these cookies are simple, yet there’s a lot of depth in the flavors. Unlike many other cookies and cakes with sweet syrup or jam filling, the cookie dough is filled with pomegranate molasses instead!

However, you may have trouble keeping these cookies around for long. They’ll be gone well before you know it!
