"Plump sugar-topped cookies that taste just like Mary Jane candies. I tone down the ginger and cloves for my toddlers."

I wanted something a little different and with some nutritional value for my toddlers. This recipe sounded great. I substitued 1/2 of the flour for whole wheat and skipped rolling them in sugar at the end and they are still wonderful. My 16-month old twins LOVED THEM (and I ate a few too ;-)
I thought the flavor of the cookie was pretty good. But like another reviewer said - It only initially tastes of mary jane candy. The flavor after that is nothing great although not bad. The inside was nice and chewy but the whole cookie had a pretty thick hard outer shell that I didn't care for. Maybe that wouldn't happen if it wasn't rolled in sugar? I followed the recipe exactly. I was unsure about using the full amount of the dry mixture cause the dough got pretty crumbly and tough to mix but I did. I think if I make this recipe again I will use less dry ingredients and not roll in sugar before baking. I also wonder how this dough would work for cutouts? All in all this cookie isn't bad it's just not the fantastic cookie I was hoping for.
These had a very unusual taste. The texture out of the oven was not good at all. The texture got better with time though. I just think I like more tradition flavor of cookies. Will not make these again. was hoping for something new and delicious but these aren't it.
LOVELY appearance, taste, texture, and smell! Next time I will use less ginger and/or cloves though...slightly spicy if you want a peanut buttery cookie. Delicious, quick, easy--definately makes my top 5 cookies list! I will be making these again soon!
I'm a little sad that these didn't turn out as good as I'd hoped! The peanut butter and molasses flavours weren't very prominent at all, and most of my cookies burned on the bottom despite my oven rack being set in the middle. The flavour wasn't bad (except for the burnt bottoms) but it wasn't what I had expected. The dough was easy to make and roll though. I had fun trying something new, even if they weren't the best. Thanks anyway!
This is a great molasses cookie recipe! I rolled the cookies in cinnamon/sugar mixture. Everyone loved the spice. Yummy!!
The dough tasted fantastic but the flavor of the baked cookie was only so-so. After baking the molasses and peanut butter flavors mellow. It's not peanutty enough to be a great peanut butter cookie or spicy enough to be a molasses cookie.
These are SOOO good. Once they have cooled they're slightly crispy but chewy in the middle, and the flavor is devine. While they look prettier rolled in sugar I think they're just as good without it, although I've never been a fan of sugar rolled cookies to be honest.
