Everything you always wanted in a molasses cookie: chewy crackled outsides, soft cakey insides, with a wonderful fragrance that makes the whole house smell like Christmas. I love that these cookies use no butter and could easily be made for vegan friends. I used olive oil and palm sugar for a very healthy version, and they came out just as good as with regular sugar. I added extra spices since I like mine spicy - 2 teaspoons cinammon, 1.5 teaspoons ginger, heaping 1/2 teaspoon of cloves. I flattened mine slightly as the first batch did not spread, probably my oven's fault. I also dipped the tops on sparkling sugar instead of the regular kind. My new go-to molasses cookie.
