      Very good. I used regular brown sugar, but otherwise made as directed. I refrigerated the dough overnight and made the cookies in the morning - as these were for a gathering. I only got about 2 dozen cookies but my cookie balls were probably bigger than 1 inch. I am serving these cookies with strawberries for a nice healthy treat. These are very good and not as sweet as other cookies which will go wonderful with fruit. Thanks for sharing.

      I have not personally tried this recipe but a word of warning to diabetics: the nutritional facts of this recipe are incorrect. 1/4 cup of molasses contains 46 sugars. Also, Splenda brown sugar blend does contain some real brown sugar. And flour has carbs as well. Though this recipe is much healthier than most cookies, please be careful. Everything in moderation for us diabetics! Thanks for posting a healthier recipe!

      If there were full-fat cookies, I will give them 3.5 stars,but since there are sooo much healthiER than the regular one, they deserve at least 4 (I wanted to give them 4.5 stars, but Zaar wouldn't let me ;p). I baked them for 9 min and they were dry, but that may due to the fact that I made them into heart. However, I'll make it again with more splenda or molasses...I felt that they needed a bit more sweeteness to bring out the spice flavour. Thanks for posting. :)
