A very nice, crispy cookie with a crackled surface. Sprinkled chopped crystallized ginger pieces on the tops of a few of them just to try. Good, but they're delicious just made as written. Thanks.
Very nice cookies. I used a 1 tbsp scoop and got 42 cookies. Baked for 11 minutes and the edges were crispy with chewy centers. Just the way I like them. :) Thanks Puppitypup! Update Dec 22,2010 - I'm making theses again in less than a week. Special request by the man who doesn't like molasses cookies. lol UPDATE: Jan 26, 2011 - froze the dough in balls that had be dipped in sugar. Defrosted on the cookie sheet then baked for 10 minutes. Perfect!!!! Great time saver.
Very pretty, very delicious cookies, even for a non-molasses lover. Baked up like a charm. Thanks, would definitely make again.
Lovely molasses cookies, I only had black strap molasses in so used it and they were delicious! Also used splenda in and out. We love them and i will make them again, thanks for posting!
These were exceptionally good. I've made molasses cookies b/f but generally w/frosting. These didn't need any because of the sugar glaze. Very very good Puppity!!!
Delish! I made these last year, took them to work, and they were a hit! Thanks for the great recipe!
My favorite kind of cookie! Have been seraching for years for the PERFECT molasses cookie. This could be it - have to make again! My kids loved these. One gave them 5 stars and one gave 4. I am giving five because they were terrifically easy to make, dough rolled up nicely, baked evenly and needed exactly 9 mintues. Used parchment paper (as always). These are very mild for molasses cookies and I tend to like mine a bit sharper. I may add additional spice (allspice or nutmeg ) next time to bring them out just a tad more. Very nice recipe. Thanks.
This recipe is a real winner. The only change we made was to use Splenda Baking Mix instead of regular sugar, and they turned out wonderfully!
Except for the amounts/variety of spices, this is the same as my mother-in-law's Ginger Cookie recipe and it is awesome! I usually add all of the spices listed here plus a bit of allspice and nutmeg.
