Personal Notes:
I made these cookies each year at Christmas with my Aunt Jane. I stayed for the weekend and we baked all day Saturday. We made these cookies, butter cookies and Butterscotch Thins (which I never liked) and stored in huge Dutch Boy Pretzel tins. * I don't think they make Brer Rabbit Molasses any more (Its a very old recipe) so any Molasses will do.
