      This is an OUTSTANDING hermit recipe and just what I was looking for. I needed more than 15 minutes of baking, but it may be because I fit 3 strips of dough on one large baking sheet. I didn't bother sifting the flour with the spices, I just whisked the dry ingredients together really well in a bowl. Also I measured out the molasses and dropped in an egg and the vanilla and beat well with a fork to save an extra mixing bowl for the egg. (I'm always looking for shortcuts that will save on dirty dishes!)
