Re: Gingerbread cookies

The rule of thumb is that a stick of salted butter has roughly 1/4 teaspoon of salt per stick. Exact amounts differ between manufacturers.

So in the first recipea you might be a little over salted, but not terrible (1stick=8tbs). The second is weird. Not having any salt in baked goods generally results in them tasting flat and a little off. For the second recipea the molasses will have a little, but far less than I would expect. I would probably add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to it.
