I reduced the spices significantly since I wanted molasses cookies, not spce cookies. They came out quite flat, very flat. 'Not used to flat cookies. :) Keeping in mind I halved the recipe, these are my measurements: 1/4c each butter, margarine, shortening; 1c brown sugar; 1/4c molasses; 1 egg; 2c flour; 1/2 + 1/8t cinnamon; 1/4t ginger; 1/8t cloves. Also added 1t vanilla. Only problem I had was their flatness. 'Kinda messed with my mind - expecting flat cookies to be crisp instead of chewy. Good tasting, but didn't wow me. Too, they spread a good bit even after refrigerating so two & a half inches is probably a good distance between 'em. Made 4 dozen, about an inch round of dough each.
