      I changed the amount of salt in here. My original recipe calls for 1 tsp of salt but that may be too much for some. A few people have made it as is (the majority) with no complaints on salt, however a few commented it was too much. I think 1/2 tsp can be used with no alterations to the recipe. I will leave it up to you either way you still WIN !

      BEST MOLASSES COOKIES EVER!!! Yes, I am that excited about these. I didn't have allspice and nutmeg, so I just added cinnamon and ginger. I subbed 3/4 cup vegetable oil for the shortening, and they turned out great! Everyone loved them, even my brother, who hates molasses. :) Will definitely make this one again!

      Yum!! These are fantastic...my 2.5yr old twins LOVED the dough! I have one rack of cookies left..still warm..& I'm sure they'll be gone before bedtime. I'm going to start another batch right away. I followed the recipe exactly..I love a spicy cookie & this as a to-die-for combo. I wouldn't call these super spicy--my girls don't like anything too spicy & they loved these. THANK YOU!!!

      These barely made it into the cookie tin - they just flew off the cooling racks! I toned down all the spices by 1/2 tsp., and used just 1 tsp. baking soda. And I didn't roll them in sugar. They are just right - soft, spicy, with crisp edges. And going, going, gone! Yum!
