When Woody and I appeared on Sally Longo’s television show, Dinner at 8, Sally brought her favorite molasses cookies. We loved the chewy middle and crisp crust and immediately asked for the recipe. The original came from Sally’s aunt Evelyn, who made the cookies with shortening, which was responsible for the special texture.
