I found this on the web, and since they're the absolute favorite of my grandson, I made them for him. We couldn't tell the difference! The only thing is-these are a lot fresher!

Dangerously wonderful. Not exact, but so darn close you won't be able to leave them alone! Tips: 1. make on parchment paper 2. make smaller than the TBSP recommended a TSP woud be much better, as the tbsp spreads to about 4in. 3. let cool on cookie sheet completely, they'll be easier to handle. 4. Double the filling. 5. Be very careful with your molasses, if you go overboard, it wil be overpowering. You could probably get away with leaving it out especially if using DARK brown sugar. YUM!
