Thin Gingerbread

Place in a saucepan one pint of molasses, one cup of butter, one teaspoonful of ginger, one teaspoonful of soda, and let them boil together for a moment.  Then remove from the fire, and when nearly cool stir in flour enough to make a thick batter or dough.  Spread thinly on tins and bake quickly.
