Wow. I used to think chocolate chip cookies were the bomb. Step aside tradition, because these beauties just took first place!
These taste good any time of the year, but are warm and spicy; I recommend them during the colder months. However, if it is tending towards summer they are really quick to bake and amazing chilled with a glass of milk.
*1 cup of sugar is overkill in these cookies. If you don't enjoy knock-your-nickers-off sweet you can let the molasses and sugar coating take care. I'd recommend less than 3/4 c sugar in the batter.
**Roll the dough in large grain sugar to enjoy a prettier, more twinkly cookie.
