These cookies are delicious served warm right from the oven! I usually make them around Christmastime or on cold snowy days here in the Midwest.

Nice cookie. Delicate and yummy. I love this as my Mom is diabetic and it doesn't have a lot of sugar if you use a sugar substitute. She has been missing the taste of Molasses and now I have a way to provide it to her without upping her sugar. Thank you for sharing.

These cookies were just that, soft and chewy. Unfortunately a little TOO soft and chewy. Too much butter I think. I love my molasses cookies soft, but these ones were so dense that they literally fell apart when I picked them up. I left them sit out on the counter all night and they were still just as soft and mushy the next day. I did the recipe just as given so I'm not certain why they turned out that way. Like I said, they tasted great! But were just to mushy to hold up.

The recipe says soft and chewy. The first day they are but the next day (even in put in an air tight container) they are as hard as a rock and I baked them only 10 mins.

don't know what happened, these cookies spread out way too much and looked nothing like the ones in the photo

My husband loves molasses cookies and has been wanting some for quite awhile. All I could find were molasses cookies that were not soft and chewy, but would come out crispy instead. These cookies are just what he has been wanting! I will be baking them again soon!! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
