Big Soft Ginger Cookies
This recipe worked out for me.....soft but chewy. Coincidentally, this recipe was almost exactly the one printed on the back of "Mother's Molasses" bottle. The amounts of the spices were different, (which is all a matter of personal taste anyway) as was the baking soda, which called for 2 teaspoons (I used 1 1/2) Also, I used brown sugar instead of white, which was what was called for on molasses bottle. I never use margarine, so I used butter instead. I refrigerated the dough for 1 hour and had no problem with stickiness shaping the balls (I also kept the dough refrigerated in between making batches) I did not have to flatten the balls, they baked perfectly. I also found that they baked best at around 8-9 minutes. The flavor was good, those of you that like more spice just have to experiment with this, but honestly, I don't know why people had all these different problems.
