This is the first time I've eaten a molasses cookie, so I'm not sure how they're supposed to taste. I followed the recipe exactly since I'm not much of a baker. They tasted great. Both my husband and I found them spicy enough. I found them a bit salty though. Maybe next time, I'll try unsalted butter. I'll try 1 tsp baking soda too (as many have suggested). My husband said they should be a bit thicker. My cookies turned out pretty flat, but they were still chewy and crisp around the edges, so still very good texture. Maybe the butter will make them stay a bit thicker. I don't want them to turn into snaps so I'm not going to make the whole batch. I'll leave the dough in the fridge and make as many as we are going to eat. Warning: keep an eye on them in the oven. They go from perfect to burnt pretty quickly.
