I love these cookies and make them for my family using Splenda for the sugars. We love lemons, so I use lemon zest in a glaze to go over the cookies when they are cooled off! Submitted by:

Why is everyone adding salt & baking soda to the recipe when they're already in there?
Will definitely try these and rate them soon. DH loves molasses cookies, so the rating will likely be his.

I'm thinking about trying this with Splenda brown sugar mix, Stevia and some extra fiber added to lower the WW points value. Submitted by:

Nom, nom nom.... And no artificial sweetener! Yay! Make them twice as big & they're still only 107 calories each. Not bad for a treat.

I rolled dough into a Saran-Wrapped roll and froze the two rolls. I could, then, slice and bake them at my convenience. I also cut back on the brown sugar a tad and used candied ginger chopped extremely fine. Blackstrap mollasses provided more nutrients and VERY good flavors!! Terrific cookies. Submitted by:

I was a little short on the molasses and my batter was quite dry so I didn't roll it in the sugar and cinnamon at the end, but my guests really liked the taste. I only got 36 cookies instead of 45 so my nutritional count was off a bit. I am buying more molasses 2nd try! I liked the cookie size. Submitted by:

These are the best cookies every. So easy to make. Instead of rolling the whole cookie in the sugar mixture, I use a glass, and press the top with the sugar mixture. Cuts a little more sugar out.

This is almost the exact sam recipe as passed down in my family from my great grandmother! It is great. This year I plan to try it with Splenda brown sugar to try and reduce the calories a little. Submitted by:

This recipe turned out great! I added 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp baking soda to recipe. I used 1c of brown sugar instead of 3/4. I was able to get 24 cookies because I didn;t want them to small. The first batch did not flatten so the last batch I flatted with a wet spoon and it turned out perfect...

These are fantastic! I didn't use all of the flour or all the sugar and cinnamon mixture. I also just gave them a little push down before baking and they turned out perfect!! Submitted by:

They say that 1 serving has 53 calories (roughly). How many is in 1 serving. If it's one cookie then I'd rather get the 100 calorie entenmens. at least I get 4 cookies. No but he recipe sounds good. even though I don't bake, I love to eat sweets so I will definately ty this.

I will try these. I learned that molasses has lots of calcium which I am always short on in my nutrition report. Submitted by:
