    dukeswalker's Note:

    This was adapted from the Soft Molasses Cookie recipe, #63981...I fell in love with that cookie, along with the rest of recipezaar...and since I was eating these weekly I felt like I needed to make them a bit more healthy. The result was AWESOME - The cookie now stays a little puffier yet still chewy. The wheat flour is a nice addition I used 1/2 regular whole wheat flour and 1/2 pastry whole wheat flour - actually giving it more taste...If anyone can figure out how to cut down the butter - let me know!! Hope you like!

      I made these and took them along on a family vacation, and everyone gave them rave reviews! I left out the nutmeg, which I can't tolerate. They turned out perfect, not too strong on the spice side. You can taste just the smallest tang of baking soda, like you do in snicker doodles. Delicious! Updated review: Even for a 'healthier' cookie, these are sooo good! I think 3/4 cup butter is a lot for a healthy cookie, so I wanted to sub 1/4 cup this time. I used apple and orange pulp from my juicer. The cookies are WonDerFull! I don't taste even a hint of fruit, and they are not rubbery like when I substitute applesauce.

      First, this recipe was super easy and the bake time is only 8-10 min! I liked the simplicity of the ingredients with lots of spices instead of so much sugar, and the whole wheat flour is a bonus too. They are definitely not "mom's" molasses cookies. They taste like a cookie on a diet, which they sort of are. But all in all, they took about a half hour from start to finish and are doing the trick.

      This is a very tasty cookie. I did not have any alspice but it tasted great without it. To be better for you I suppose you could forgo the sugar and cinnamon on the outside but it sure adds to the taste. A very good cookie
