THESE WERE WHAT MY GRANDMA AND MOSTHER USED TO MAKE!!! FABULOUS... been lookin for this recipe for YEARS. I didnt change anything except i quadrupled(4x's) the batch all at once. this took a whole entire bottle of brer rabbit molasses, but was SOOOOOOO worth it. this is part of my permanent collection. i used "sparkling sugar crystals" to roll the cookies in and it looked JUST LIKE MY MOMMA's!!!!!!!.

These were a hit at the work party I made them for (and was asked to bring them again), but I only got about 40 cookies out of this. Still, with only a cup of sugar in 40 cookies, these are very nice and it's okay to have two or three :)
