Delicious, soft, melt-in-your-mouth cookies. This is actually a vintage WWII Brer Rabbit "Molasses Sugar Cookie" recipe from when sugar was rationed. As odd as it seems, DO use butter-flavored SHORTENING and NOT butter, the taste is buttery anyway and shortening will give you that perfect texture. Chilling the dough is also a must. Original recipe says "yields 4 dozen", but we only end up with 2 dozen. Prep time doesn't include chilling time. Family Note: Memo is Mom-Mom's mother: Verdis Pierce Reasoner.
