Just nibbling on my first bite out of the oven. These are delicious! Plenty spicy IMO, and we have pretty heavy spice-tolerance in our household. I substituted 1 stick unsalted butter for the margarine called for by the recipe, and I did use blackstrap molasses, which IMO makes these marvelous and rich flavored -- but I tend to prefer my cookies with a little 'bite' of bitterness (think Oreos without the filling), so the blackstrap was great for that. Healthy, too. You definitely can't skip the chilling-in-the-fridge stage, or the dough is too sticky, but with a very small dusting of flour, the chilled dough rolled out beautifully. Remember not to roll it too thin, too, because your cookies will be crispy and brittle; thicker cookies are better here. This one's going into the annual-recipes box!!! Thanks!
