Just made these and they are a good cookie, but I'm not as excited about them as I had hoped. I think it's the after taste of molasses that I'm not enjoying so much; I've never cooked with molasses before and I'm guessing it's just a personal preference thing. Having said that, the cookies turned out beautiful and were super easy to make. I did use 3 sticks of unsalted butter because I couldn't bring myself to eat shortening in a cookie, used half white and half brown sugar, added 2 tsp. of my prized Vietnamese cinnamon to the dough, and cut the baking soda and salt in half. I also rolled the cookies in cinnamon sugar, rather than just sugar. The cookies are gorgeous, not flat and thin, the dough was nice and stiff (yes, even using all butter), and they baked up perfectly in 12 minutes. I would try this recipe again leaving the molasses out and I imagine that would make this a five-star recipe for me. Thanks! It was great to try something new. :)
