If you like molasses cookies, these are the ones to try. I have an elderly friend who I make these for quite often as they are his favorite cookie. I use all white sugar and a lot of times substitute all-spice for the cloves since I'm not crazy about cloves. I also roll the whole cookie in sugar, not just the top. I store them in a cookie tin and they stay nice and soft. YUM!

Just as good as everyone says! This recipe always comes out great for me. The first time I made them I didn't have any cloves, but I used allspice and they were delicious! I also roll the whole cookie in sugar. I'll be saving this one :)

I made these for my cookie tray this year along with my regular Molasses cookies that I have made the last couple of years. My son is the Molasses cookie fan and he really liked these, but he still likes the other ones better. However, others that are fans of Molasses, especially my neice just home from the Army, loved them! I thought they were great. I did cut the cloves down to 1 1/4 teaspoons, but I wish I hadn't. Next time I won't. Thank you for a great Molasses cookie recipe!

I made these cookies for my Dad for Father's Day...the only thing different I did was to substitute 1 tsp of Nutmeg for the cloves because my Dad doesn't like them. I also reduced the cooking time to 10 minutes because my oven tends to run a bit hot. These cookies stayed wonderfully soft and were loved my everyone (especially Dad)! I am adding these to my Christmas rotation. Thanks for the great recipe.

Yeah, I am pretty much in love with these cookies. The kids have a snow day today, so I whipped up a batch of these to go with their cocoa. Three kids and I destroyed the entire batch of cookies in one sitting. I did add about 3/4 C more flour to make them easier to roll into balls, but other than that, the recipe stayed the same. Delightfully soft, nicely spiced and very easy to make with ingredients always have on hand. What's not to love? Thank you ever so much for sharing this recipe!
