Sure and I tried some of these "wee treats" today. I love molasses and these hit the spot. I made a double batch and was careful about adding the milk, it didn't require all of it. I converted the measurements from weight to volume. 8 ounces flour=1 1/2 cups..... 2 ounces butter=1/4 cup...... 1 ounce sugar=2 1/2 tablespns.. Thanks for this great recipe Miller... Lee

- 2 ounces butter
