Soft Chocolate Molasses Cookies

These cookies are beautifully cracked, crunchy around the edges, soft and chewy in the middle, and full of deep, caramelized and chocolate flavor.

Notes: To get a soft chewy cookie, slightly underbake the cookies. Giving the pan a hard tap and pressing on the cookies after baking will help to keep the centers dense and chewy.
