I'm really surprised at former reviewers who thought these cookies had great flavor. In my experience they're quite bland. I substituted brown sugar for the molasses and Splenda. Mine took about 2 minutes longer to bake than the recipe called for, but once they cooled they had a nice, cakey texture. Hopefully they'll be better tomorrow, but I doubt I'll make these again. ***On reflection, these cookies weren't as bad as I originally thought. They definitely improved after a day or two. My boyfriend thought they were a little weird, but he ate half of them in one night. His parents liked them and said it was a nice change from the usual, too-sweet cookies. And, of course, this was intended as a breakfast cookie, not a sugary dessert. I may make this again and tweak the spices a bit, or make them the same way and eat them with apple cider, since the combination of the two wasn't half bad.
