Nice and soft -- we used butterscotch chips for buttons. I liked them even better the next day.

These turned out SO cute...and more importantly they tasted great. I ended up refrigerating the dough overnight because of time constraints and was a little worried that it would be too dry and hard, but after a few minutes out of the fridge it rolled out well. Thanks

Delicious! Keep forever too--if you don't gobble them all up. Just the right texture and crispness level. Thanks for posting!

Wow, these cookies are amazing and they stayed soft. I frosted these with 1 cup confectioners sugar with a bit of hot water (maybe 1 tbsp) and 1/4 tsp. vanilla added. All of my coworkers loved them and I made them vegan by using 1/4 cup applesauce instead of the egg, decorated with chocolate chips, dried cranberries and raisins. I also made these with 1/2 cup molasses and 1/2 cup golden syrup instead of 1 cup molasses. I cooked mine about 7 minutes at 375 degrees F and they were perfect. Thanks for sharing this recipe they were yummy!!!! :)

mimi in Maine...I made these for a bake sale this weekend. My house smelled wonderful all day. I used a smaller man cookie cutter and a flower shaped cutter. My oven cooks high so I had to reduce the temp to about 330 and cooked for about 7 minutes, again that is my oven's problem. The dough was wonderful to work with, I chilled it for close to 3 hours. I had no problems rolling it or rerolling it. I problably have close to 5 dozen cookies to sell tomorrow. Thank you, its definately a keeper in my books..my daughter has requested them for her Christmas party already.
