I don't share recipes very often, but I am going to share this one. I went through and cleaned out my old cookbooks. I had so many diet cookbooks and other kinds that I felt were just unhealthy. I got rid of almost a half of a trash can. We have big trash cans. I did keep Susan Branch and my Gooseberry Patch cookbooks.

This recipe comes from "In the kitchen with Family & Friends by Gooseberry Patch."
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup molasses
4 T. milk
4 1/2 cups flour
2 t. baking soda
Cream together butter and sugar; add molasses and milk. Combine flour and baking soda; add slowly to the molasses mixture. Roll the dough into 2 logs, about the size of a paper towel tube. Slice the dough into 1/4th slices. Arrange on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. ( I chilled the dough for easier handling about 5 minutes.) A perfect cookie.

That is it. I hope to have some super heroes over this Halloween.

Have a great Halloween too. Since I have been so lax in updating.
Thank you so much for stopping by,
