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.

My DH took these to work every day for over a week and he asked me to make them again. For him to tell me he likes something is unusual, so I knew he must have REALLY liked them a lot! I made following the recipe exactly and the result was a crispy on the outside, chewy inside delicious cookie that we both really liked! I can see why they won 1st place! Roni

Great cookie! I added some ground cloves and ground mace because I was in the mood for them. The cookie has nice texture - crisp outside, soft inside.

I have looked for years for the cookies my best friend's Mom made when we were kids ... Spicy Crinkles they were called. These cookies are exactly what I have been looking for. I made them thin and crispy and I, and my whole family LOVED them. They didn't last long!

LOVED these. I only made half a recipe so the dough was very wet seeing that I couldn't really "half" an egg hehehe. I didn't have any molasses so I used pure maple syurp and they still tasted soooo good. I also sprinkled in a little cayenne pepper to give it an extra kick. Because the dough was so wet they spread like crazy so the cookies were super thin but I still thought they were excellent! I will for sure make these again!
