mixture with the dry ingredients. Add only enough molasses mixture to
form a thick dough, add more bran if necessary.

onto cookie sheet and flatten slightly to form portions about the size of a
silver dollar. Bake at 300 degrees F for about 1 hour. Flip and bake for
an additional 45 minutes until they are dried out. Keep checking to make
sure they don't burn.
