Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 teacup molasses or black
7 Ounce(s) Light Brown Sugar
9 Tablespoon(s) Cocoa Powder
10 Ounce(s) Butter or margarine
Pinch(s) Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla
1 Pound(s) Plain flour, approximately
Preheat the oven to 400F. Mix all of the ingredients together, except
for the flour. Add the flour slowly to the rest of the mixture until
it reaches the right consistency to roll out. The dough should be
quite soft. (You may find it easier to knead it with your hands.) Roll
out on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1/4 inch and cut into
decorative shapes with small cookie cutters, a sharp knife or the rim
of a glass. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake in the oven for
about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven while they are still soft and
cool on a rack, then pack into crocks or jars. The authors note that
the Pennsylvania Dutch settlers made these at Thanksgiving and stored
them in a stoneware crock until Christmas. The cookies can be made at
any time, but allowed to age for 4-6 weeks. They can be used as a
substitute for graham crackers for a pie crust. from Edible Gifts by
