The butterscotch and lack of molasses is what made me want to try this recipe. As written, it's very good. I made the following changes, but only because my family like a "zingy" gingerbread. For spices, I used: 2 tsp grated fresh ginger, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp cardamom, .5 tsp nutmeg, .5 tsp ground clove. I put all of the spices together in a mortar and pestle and "pestled" them together, which releases extra oils from the spices. I also added the spices after the egg, but before the flour and baking soda.
A planetary mixer (like a kitchen aid) is a real help for this recipe, it creates a very stiff dough that is probably more than a rotary hand mixer can manage.
