    These are a light wonderful cookie. I wanted a recipe that wasn't rolled in sugar, and this is it. I can't imagine there's anything that will make them better.

    Very good! I am a soft cookie lover. The flavor is excellent, all blending together well. The amount of salt to use was omitted in the instructions so I added about 1/2 teas. I also combined the sugar to 1/2 cup and added it all to the creaming of the sugar and molasses. (I think that maiameow ment the 1/4 cup dry sugar to be a sugar substitute). I baked them in a convection oven at 350° for 12 minutes. and had 34 cookies with my #40 cookies dough scoop. This is a keeper. Thanks for posting, I'm glad I made them.
