Great recipe! My first try came out very soft (as they are supposed to, but a bit too soft for me) so the second time I added a little less molasses (about a third of a cup), both times they came out fantastic. :)
I noticed another person tried butterscotch chips as a substitute. I really do not recommend the butterscotch at all. It's a strong flavor that ends up competing with the strong molasses and ginger flavors and overall I didn't think it worked very well.
I tried another batch with white chocolate chips as a substitute chip and the slightly reduced molasses and those were amazingly good. Rave reviews over the holidays from family members including my 3-yr.-old niece who always tells it like it is. ;)
I greased the cookie sheet with margarine, I like to grease the sheet even though this recipe says not to. They came out great with nice goldeny flat bottoms. I decorated at the end with confectioner's sugar instead of white sugar which I also recommend.
That's it for my changes, other than that I made them as per the recipe. Fantastic cookies, I'm sure I'll be making these again!
