    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Position the rack in the lower third of the oven.
    2. Line the bottom of a shallow roasting pan with aluminum foil.
    3. Score a diamond pattern into the ham, about 1/3 inch deep. Place the ham, flat side down, in the pan. Bake until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F., on a meat thermometer, 15 to 18 minutes per pound. During the last 30 minutes of baking time, brush the ham with 1/3 cup of the molasses. Remove ham from the oven, transfer to a cutting board, and let rest 10 minutes.
