Love 'em! I halved the recipe but should have made the whole thing because they were gone in a flash!

Great recipe! Great cookies! Enough to give away and still have plenty for my family. Thanks!

These are extremely good hot out of the oven...soft and sugary with a nice spice flavor and they melt in your mouth. You can't stop eating them! After they cooled they became firmer and chewy. I liked reheating them in the microwave. If you bake them for a shorter time they will probably stay softer. I scaled down the recipe to 20 servings and it made 44 cookies scooped out with my half tablespoon. I used butter crisco and rounded off the odd measurements. I found the dough to be soft but easy to roll in the sugar. I baked mine for 12 minutes. Thanks for this yummy recipe! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

I used butter rather than margarine. These are tasty, but not quite like Paradise Bakery's molasses cookies. This is a keeper for us. Have some of the dough in the freezer. Will let y'all know if it works out when we get around to using it.

This is a great recipe! I've been trying to duplicate molasses cookies the way grandma used to make them and these are pretty close. I cut the recipe in half and still had over 5 dozen cookies -- enough to share with coworkers and friends. I would suggest halving the recipe or you will be eating molasses cookies for weeks. Not that there's anything wrong with that...... Thanks for sharing!

WONDERFUL! I love molasses cookies and these are no exception! These have a great balance of spice and sugar-y sweetness. The dough was a bit soft to try and roll so I put it in the fridge in between cookie sheets. I cut the serving size down to 18 and it worked out great. That made it work out to 1 egg. My cookies were perfect after 12 minutes. Next time, I will make the whole batch. Well worth it!
