The BEST Molasses Cookies

I have been making these molasses cookies with my mom for years, and they have officially become a tradition. Just the smell brings me back to the 4th grade. It's true, Martha Stewart really knows her molasses cookies! The only changes I have made is I use a teaspoon sized ice cream scoop to ensure equal sized cookies instead of a tablespoon. And with the ice cream scoop I use, it makes 50 cookies, not 36! I believe I have perfected the baking time for my personal preference: hardened edges with a gooey middle.
