Nice, easy recipe. I added another 1/2 cup of sugar because the molasses too overpowering, even though I love molasses. Also grated fresh ginger rather than using ground.

The kids and I really enjoyed these. I used whole wheat pastry flour, a mix of raisins and craisins, and pecans instead of walnuts. I also made them huge so I didn't quite get 6 dozen. But they have a lovely subtle flavor and great texture. DS did say he'd like a few more nuts in his next time!
