I don't remember where this recipe came from. I found the name interesting and cut it out of a magazine.

I have had this recipe for years - and I did find it in a magazine a lady that I worked with had brought in. I highly recommend this cookies. They bake up very nicely - very soft as well. A great cookie with a cup of coffee on a cold day. This is also a great cookie for Christmas. I recommend using the Brer Rabbit Molasses when making. Thanks for posting this one.
