So good for ya ! Love hermits, had many different recipes for them and this is the best one I have found.
Love the wonderful aroma that fills the house while cooking them. My daughter made these up tonight ~
This one came from a classmate of my husband, his wife had brought them over to us when we invited them for dinner one night! Had to have the recipe.
Sugar and crisco ~ Beat in eggs ~ then add molasses and water and mix until smooth. SET ASIDE
( Some have suggested that these are to sweet and have cut the white sugar amount down. So be aware of that if you don't want them to sweet)
