This only gets a 4 rating once the modifications have been added (nudge wink). When I met my (now) husband, he used to bang on about these fantastic! molasses cookies his paternal grandmother used to make for him. I boldly asked her for the recipe one day which, when I made a batch, my husband informed me, tasted nothing like hers! Rather than accuse the old dear of leaving out the secret ingredient, I've spent the last 29 married years in a tizzy of cookie experiments until, Eureka! I found it in Betty.

But a really good soft cookie needs to be more cake-like than Betty's so I've changed the recipe and I use 2 eggs now instead of one.
Note: It calls for cinnamon and ginger but sometimes, for giggles I use allspice and nutmeg to see if Mr.Fussy can tell.
Oh... and when I'm in Europe I need to remember that my flour is not as heavy here as in North America so I need to add 3 1/2 cups flour instead of 3.
