  • 2 Tbsp molasses
  • 1/2 cup Prairie Farms Salted Butter softened

  • Add wet ingredients, and mix until it forms the dough.
  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured countertop and knead until smooth.
  • Place dough on a parchment lined backing sheet, cut an 'x' on top of the dough with a sharp knife. Brush dough with melted butter.
  • Bake in the oven for 35 minutes until dough is a dark and golden and cracks start to appear. You should be able to knock on the dough and hear a hollow sound.
