By soft cookies, I don't mean ones that have a frosting or filling in them.
I mean cookies that have a soft texture as opposed to a crisp one.
I want to mail some molasses spice cookies of the soft variety, I'm just afraid that with mailing them, they'll not arrive at their destination in one piece (rather fragments). This is not what I want; I would prefer for the cookies to arrive intact.
I have no clue whether the 2nd recipe will produce a soft cookie or
a crisp cookie. Can somebody give me an idea of what the texture of the 2nd cookie will be (crisp or soft) just by skimming through the ingredient list with the 2nd cookie recipe? I've never made this recipe before, so I don't know what type of texture this cookie will have.
Would you recommend mailing soft cookies or advise against it?
These are the recipes I'd like to use for molasses spice cookies:

The 2nd recipe is an actual recipe, as it's one i have in my archives; I didn't find it off the internet, and thus don't have a link to provide for the recipe.
