I made one small change and that was using half butter instead of all Crisco. I did chill the dough for an hour (or so) before baking. These cookies turned out perfectly. Mine were done at eleve...

Pretty, soft and chewy molasses cookies with just enough of a spicy bite. I made no changes to the recipe and after seeing and tasting the cookies found none are needed. I did make the cookies...

Spicy, soft and delicious. Very easy to make. The only thing I changed was that I used butter in place of the shortening (what I had on hand).
