"My children love spice cookies at any time. I think most children love them. I am enclosing a recipe that moms and dads can have their children help with during the baking at Christmas. Every child keeps their special memories of every day with the family and I sure remember mine from when I was a little girl."

packed brown sugar

great cookies! I had too make up most of it because i used maple syrup unstead of sugar but they turned out great! As for them being deflated, one cut them thicker and 2 let them sit for a few min before eating, these have amazing taste thanks!
The dough was marvelous - I'm sure at least a dozen cookies worth of dough ended up in my stomach - but the resulting cookies were deflated and underwhelming. Maybe she meant Baking POWDER instead of baking SODA? Maybe she meant 18 minutes instead of 8? Who knows. Needs some tinkering.
These cookies are also a family tradation. I am so glad the Carol submitted it. Everyone who loves Christmas should try these cookies. They are a taste of heaven!
Excellent recipe that was easy to make. Instead of putting one teaspoon of each spice I put four teaspoons of all spice. Also I tryed a few with and with out icing and I definately think they need a simple Luke warm water and icing sugar icing make them perfect.
I wanted to try something different for my Christmas cookies. These sounded good and taste great. BUT they didn't firm up in the refrigerator and it took more like 5 1/2 cups of flour. And I agree with the person who said maybe it should be baking powder rather than baking soda. I tried thicker cooking them less....everywhich way just didn't work.
Every year i try a few new cookie recipes, but it takes a really special cookie to get on my list of "regulars". This cookie made it not just for its wonderfully zingy spiciness but for its ability to stay chewy all through the season Great recipe!
i made these at Xmas time and they didn't really suit me. some of my tasters loved them but i thought the molassas was FAR too over powering.
These are great! My boyfriend loved them! Perhaps next time I'll use less molasses and see how it turns out because I felt that the taste was a bit too strong. After a few days it did taste better though.. These are very nice cookies! (:
