chewy molasses cookies

the recipe for these cookies has been requested...more than once.

the recipe is from an old-missing-the-cover cookbook of my mom's.
likely from a beta sigma phi cookbook in the 1960's.
makes super-tasty-absolutely-yummy chewy molasses cookies.

kid friendly to make...if you are patient and are willing to have bits of molasses dough on everything.
otherwise easy to whip up.

under bake them for extra goodness.
