When I came across this recipe, I was looking for a cookie that roughly matched the tasty ginger molasses cookies you get at the brand name coffee shops (Starbucks, Second Cup, Bridgehead etc.) This one, while not a precise match, came pretty darn close. I should mention that when I made it, I used light brown sugar instead of white and it turned out quite well. This is probably why mine turned out to have a stronger than expected molasses flavour. I also slightly over did it with the shortening, so they turned out a little too fatty. Despite a few mistakes on the baker's part, they turned out just fine and were very popular among my housemates.
