Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas tradition continues My husband bought the Truvia/brown sugar mix instead of the plain Truvia. I have never used this combination before. Was pleased with the recipe and have made them twice. Once for my traditional ginger molasses cookies at Christmas this year. Glad my husband made the mistake. They were so good.
