How to make the cookies so dark?

My cookies turned out a lighter brown color, and I would like the darker color like in the picture. I used Wholesome brand, organic dark brown sugar(the darkest I could find), and Grandma's brand original unsulphured molasses(the only unsulphured molasses I could find in town). Thanks!

My guess is that the photo you posted is not representative of the actual result: it’s too dark.

This recipe dates from 2010 and poor digital photography from amateurs was pretty common. All three photos appear to have different color issues. I’m willing to guess that the actual baked good looks more like something between the second and third photos.

The first photo is clearly too dark based on the fabric tone.
