How to make it

  • Preheat oven at 350 F. Grease large cookie sheet. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat butter and molasses ( don’t use margarine because it separates from molasses during heating). Remove saucepan from heat; with spoon stir in flour, sugar, ginger and salt until smooth. Stir in brandy until blended. Return saucepan to very low heat to keep mixture warm.
  • Drop 1 teaspoon mixture onto cookie sheet; with BACK OF SPOON, spread in circular motion to make 4 inch round (mixture spreads during baking to fill in any thin areas). Repeat to make 3 more rounds, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake cookies about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove cookie sheet from oven; allow cookie to cool briefly, only until edges set. with pancake turner, flip cookies over quickly so lacy texture will be on outside .
  • Repeat until all mixture is used.

    We used dark molasses which was too strong. So we made another batch without the dark molasses and mixed the two together, which was fine.
