THESE ARE SO SOFT!! I let them cool as directed (5min on the sheet then to wire rack) I only let them sit on the wire rack about 2 - 3 minutes and then I bagged them. I also dipped them in red and green sugar, just for holiday flare - THEY ARE TASTY TASTY TASTY!!
Easy to make, easy to roll,and turned out soft. But the smell of the molasses and/or batter reminded me of ipecac. These cookies were also bland and not sweet. I made these to add to treat bags, and I don't like them enough to give to others. If I don't want to eat these why should I pawn them off to others?
Really delicious and simple. They've stayed nice & soft. I used my Pampered Chef small melonball tool and had these done in no time. Made the perfect amount.
THESE ARE GOOD! Don't believe any bad reviews on these cookies (they must have done something wrong)! I used 1 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. ground cloves and rolled the balls in sugar before baking. Baked for 11 minutes. EXCELLENT soft molasses cookies!!
These were wonderful little cookies! I added a bit more spices as previous posters suggested and loved the flavour.
I rolled the dough into the balls as suggested and rolled them in granulated sugar. Flattened the balls with 3 fingers on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
They turned out AMAZING and were gobbled up by everyone at the event I took them to! They will totally be made again (and again and again!)
Good recipe. Really easy to make, and
the dough was excellent for rolling balls. I think I might add more ginger
next time, as I like a spicier cookie.
Oh, and I added nutmeg to the cookie dough.
These are the best molasses cookies ever! Definitely a family favorite. Very easy to make -- I did squish them down a little on the cookie sheet before cookie and sprinkled liberally with sugar. Awesome recipe!
Well, I will jump on the Bandwagon too and say YUMMY. I followed the directions to the T, with the exception of adding 1/4 t. of ground cloves. So nice and soft and delicious!!! This is a keeper!!!
