I am not an intuitive cook, so follow new recipes exactly. We like the rich molasses taste, that's why I made molasses cookies. The only thing missing was the cook time - I settled on 11 minutes. We noticed a mellowing of flavor, and sweetness, on the second day. I cooked one batch on a greased cookie sheet, one on a cookie sheet lined with parchment - the parchment yielded soft puffy cookies, the others spread out thin.

Loved it! Tastes a lot like a big chewy ginger snap. Some tips: for best results, don't overcook; cooks like a dream on Silpat baking sheets (well worth the investment) or a well-greased cookie sheet; they MUST cool for 5 minutes on the sheet--don't rush this! I highly recommend this recipe!!!

I just made a batch of these wonderful cookies. I could not believe how easy it was and how great the cookies tasted. I mixed everything together in one bowl - they are a little sticky though. I only had to bake mine for 8 minutes. Be sure to let them cool for at least 5 minutes on the cookie sheet. I can't wait to make another batch!!! Stephanie
