"The best soft molasses cookie I've ever eaten! You may substitute 3/4 cup undiluted evaporated milk with 3/4 tablespoon vinegar for the sour cream. Cookies can be iced with a mixture of confectioners' sugar and milk, or just sprinkled with confectioners' sugar." — Anna S. Uhland

These cookies were amazing. I made a few changes based on some other reviews... increased cinnamin to 2 tsp and increased the molasses to 1/2 c. Also used 1/2 c. white and 1/2 c. br sugar. The resulting cookie was soft, had excellent flavor and tasted great iced with caramel frosting.
I do like these cookies very much, but I gave the recipe only three stars because they aren't chewy and they don't taste of molasses. They are more like snickerdoodles (I sprinkled granulated sugar on top of the cookies before and after baking and that improved them). The texture is very light and soft, which I do like, but it's not the molasses cookie heaviness I'm used to.
amazing cookies... i did increase the molasse and cinnamon and also used 1/2 c white and 1/2 c brown sugar.
Great Recipe, I agree with changing the 1 tsp of Cinnamon to 2 tsp, much more flavor and I used just under 1/2 cup of molasses. Becel Margarine rather than butter. Very soft, chewy and delicious cookies
Came out great! I increased the amount of spices a bit (another 1/2 tsp. or so), and also added some ground nutmeg and ground cloves. Next time I'll try splitting the sugars with white and brown like some others suggested. Brought a batch to work and everyone loved them!
I used 1/2 brown, 1/2 white, but I think I should have added more brown, because they aren't too sweet. I also added more spice then in the recipe. After you roll them in ball if you smash them down an top them with powdered sugar they turn out much better.
iam from the countryside in egypt and i go mad each time i read a recipe saying cookie dough or cookie mix or whatnot i thought this recipe would be easy enough to make and it was..its extremely delicious too ..the cookies were so light and soft..seemed bit too sweet to eat alone though..by the way ..u can substitute baking powder with baking soda its the same..i greased the sheets so cookies lost a bit of its shape but remained sweet though..am definitely goona make alot of soft cookies from now on
This had good flavor-texture soft and cake-like. I added chopped pecans to the second batch-better taste.
