      These are delicious cookies and I love the way the top is crackled. Very easy to make. I added about 1/3 cup molasses for the 2 cups of flour and I didn't find the dough too soft. My kitchen was a bit on the cool side though, I can see that the dough might be softer in hot weather. I also added a bit extra cinnamon, since we love cinnamon. Great cookies, thanks for the recipe, Janet W.

      These were very good cookies. I added a little more molasses than the recipe called for (I was emptying the bottle) and the dough still didn't turn out too sticky. I didn't have to add more flour to compensate. I might add a little more cinnamon the next time - personal preference - but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing. These cookies came out soft and warm from the oven, then became crunchy and good, but not hard, when they cooled. I'll make these again!

      Should be a 10 star review, being from Alaska I was spoiled by Great Harvest Bread Co.'s Saturday batch of molasses cookies. I've been craving them and finally decided to try my hand at it, adding a third cup of molasses and slightly more ginger, also only cooking for 8min, I was able to accomplish both the flavor and texture! AMAZING!! Was going to share them, but now I'm not sure, thanks Janet!!
