      These cookies were simply amazing. Perfect in every way. I would like to note though, that instead of using 3/4 cup of shortening, I used 6 tbsp of shortening and 6 tbsp of lard.

      Anyhow, thank you! I'll definitely make these again.

      These cookies are great. I took some to an office pot-luck lunch and everyone on staff raved about them. I chilled the dough overnight before baking.

      Great cookies. I think I would add a 1/4 cup more molasses next time and decrease the white sugar. I made them for Thanksgiving - the kitchen was warm from all the holiday cooking and the cookies spread quite a bit in the oven so next time I think I will chill the dough before baking. Also I didn't need the full 1/2 cup of sugar for rolling the cookies - start with a 1/4 cup and add as needed.
