I have been reading this thread very slowly for the last week. (I have two kids, and one is an infant.)
I just had to tell you that today on 'Good Eats', Alton Brown did a show that was all about Molasses! It made me think of y'all. If you want to look it up, it was on the Food Channel.
I'm only on page 20 of this thread, and found this site in my search for the MM dough recipe. It's been so uch fun to read so far.
Norma, you are just adorable. Pete! You are a brillant man. Biz, I love hearing about your 'taste-testers' at home.
Hopefully, I'll eventually make it through this thread, and can give my own MM dough a try.
