These are good, they're a soft and chewy cookie, wonderfully molasses-y. Easy to make. I came out with 30 cookies. The first cookie sheet I baked had them all running together because I dropped them too close (I glossed over the part that says 2-3" apart) to one another. The second tray was fine. But it didn't affect the great taste or texture! Thanks for posting, Theresa.
