Empty contents of jar into a large mixing bowl. Blend together well.

Add 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine, 3/4 cup molasses and 1 slightly beaten egg. Mix until completely blended. Dough will be very stiff so you may need to use your hands. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
