These cookies are excellent. I modified the recipe to make it a little healthier by using blackstrap molasses and 1/2 whole wheat flour, which I think also gives it a nicer texture. The dough IS sticky, though, and I think it works our much better if you chill it, roll it into balls, roll them in white sugar, then cook. They sold well at a recent work bake sale, and I got requests for the recipe.

These are the best molasses cookies I have ever had and believe me I have tried a lot of recipes. Easy to make and delicious.

Wonderful! I was looking for a crispy on the outside but chewy on the inside and this recipe is a keeper. I substituded butter for the shortening as I had none, the result was great I also lowered the sugar content to 1 cup, then I rolled them in icing sugar and the crackle effect is very attractive. My family loved them!
