I used 1/2 tablespoon fresh (well, frozen fresh then dethawed) minced ginger root and mixed that right in the wet mixutre, cut the brown sugar by 1/4 c as some others recomended, increased the flour to 2.5 c (subbing 1 c whole wheat flour), guessed at less than the recipe calls for in salt, used a glass baking pan greased with olive oil and used only one bowl! These are great! I undercooked the first batch because they were too big, but you know what? They were still good! I rolled one of the first batch up and dipped it in milk, it was like some kind of heavenly candy bar! I may experiment with the cooking times on this recipe to see what I like best, and I encourage you to do so as well. Also only use a full half tablespoon of ginger root if you are a big fan of ginger, my husband still likes them but he said he'd use less ginger. I can't wait to serve some to my maritimer father-in-law tommorrow, as he is a fan of molasses cookies and these are similar to the bakery recipe he likes so much. ADDED LATER: Oh my goodness! Definately use parchment paper to cook them! Easier to clean up and bakes them up so much lighter and fluffy. Still have the crunchy edges with the chewy middles. I deifinately give this recipe 6 stars with the parchment paper!
