      The flavor of these was REALLY good! I was a lil' bit disappointed because I was expecting a thicker, softer cookie. I put the dough in the freezer for 15 minutes, but it was not yet firm. I baked the first batch and they turned out super thin...crispy on the edges and a little chewy inside (which is good if that's the kind of cookie you like). The second batch, the dough was more firm because it had been in the freezer longer. Those cookies were a little thicker and nice and chewy. I'm used to the Amish molasses cookies, and they are always really thick and soft. Easy, great tasting recipe!

      I got rave reviews for this recipe! My boyfriend is a cookie monster and he said that these are the best cookies he has ever eaten. I just love how they smell and taste like fall!

      I made a couple of changes. I decreased the temperature to 350' and baked for 10 minutes. I leave them to cool almost completely on the pans. They come out crispy on the outside but nice and soft on the inside.

      Great recipe!
