      These cookies came out delicious! Mine came out very chewy because I accidently added the whole 1 1/2 cups of sugar to the cookie mixture instead of reserving the 1/2 cup for rolling balls in...yumm......! I'll make these again and again! Thanks for posting! :) Martha

      Ditto to Charmie's comments. These are soooo darned good, and even make the house smell good while baking. I used Black Strap Molasses, we really like molasses here, and these were the best. Will be adding these to my cookies for gift making too as I am certain everyone will appreciate a box of these. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. The Dirty Pan Gang RULES!!!

      This is an excellent spice cookie - crispy on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside. I added a little allspice, and will also try some cardamom next time. I just gave these a light roll through colored sugar (making some red and some green for Christmas) instead of coating them with regular sugar. Because colored sugar is usually more coarse than granulated sugar, I find it leaves a gritty texture if the cookie is completely coated in it. Thanks for a very good recipe.
