 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8       oz           Dark molasses
      1/2   c            Brown sugar
      1/2   c            Margarine
    1 1/2   ts           Cinnamon
    1 1/2   ts           Cloves
    1       t            Ginger
    1       t            Allspice
      1/2   ts           Nutmeg
    1       tb           Baking soda
    4       c            Flour
 
   Mix flour, sugar, butter, and spices together.  Heat
   molasses until lukewarm and add baking soda to it.
   Add molasses to rest of ingredients and mix well.  If
   necessary, add a little water to the dough to get it
   to a soft enough consistency to roll it.  Roll the
   dough on a well floured surface, making it as thin as
   humanly possible.  (Paper thin, if you can!)  Cut into
   desired shapes, and transfer to a non-stick cookie
   sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes.  If ya
   do it right, you'll end up with a delicately thin, not
   too sweet, yummy spicy cookie.  This recipe makes
   about 40,000 cookies <g>, so be prepared to eat lots
   of 'em!!
