4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Brer Rabbit green label baking molasses

In a mixer add 2 1/2 cups white sugar and Crisco--beat. Add eggs--beat. Add baking soda and buttermilk--beat. Add molasses, baking powder and salt--beat. Slowly add flour--beat (continue with a wooden spoon when it gets too thick for the mixer). Refrigerate the dough until cold. Remove dough from refrigerator. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and roll each ball in the bowl of white sugar to coat. Place them on greased cookie sheets (do NOT flatten them). Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
