Very disappointed in this recipe. I didn't want too spicy of a coookie because these were for a classrrom party but beyond butter, sugar, and a hint of cinnamon these were unimpressive. Also, they looked great while baking then flattened out more than I expected and were very greasy. I will not make this recipe again.
Excellent recipe! My four year old and I made these together and they roll out beautifully. Taste is amazing. I used 2 T. molasses but otherwise followed recipe exactly. We sprinkled colored sugar on before we baked them. 10-11 minutes in an electric oven. thank you for the great recipe!
