When you were little, did your mom ever buy those Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies from the store? They came in a red package and, for us, it was a super special treat if my mom brought them home. I loved those things more than my Cabbage Patch doll and would do whatever it took to hoard them.
These are kinda like a spice cookie version of those. Super soft and tender with so much flavor packed in courtesy of the browned butter and spices. I will rarely choose a spice cookie over something with chocolate in it, but I did with these. And, true story, I ate them for breakfast for three days in a row. They are ahhhhmazing with coffee.
p.s. When measuring the molasses, it helps to spray the measuring cup with cooking spray first. Then the molasses just falls out!
