Recipe by B M Schumaker
"A real old fashioned molasses cookie for you to sink your teeth into. These cookies are cut out into circles and each one has a decorative raisin in the middle. To make sour milk, just add 1 teaspoon of vinegar to a cup of milk and let it stand for 5 minutes."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Delicious, soft,not-too-sweet cookies. I have been searching for a recipe that replicates my grandmother's molasses cookies, and this is almost it. (Unfortunately Grandma never wrote anything down, and now she's gone!)
I rolled the dough (which was a little too sticky, I had to add lots of flour when I rolled it out) thicker, to a 1/2 inch or so, so the cookies are more cake-like. Obviously had to cook longer. I may try the others on this website to see if their recipes are an even closer match to Grandma's, but these were very good.
I followed the recipe exactly and the biscuits were VERY dissapointing. THey were insipid and din't taste of anything. I tried them golden brown [and they were slightly raw] and thoroughly cooked [& they were very crispy, brown and a bit more tasty] but neither had a molasses taste.
I don't recommend these!
These were excellent! My husband has already asked me to make them again, except this time he wants a double batch! I highly recommend this recipe.
These weren't my favorite but they were still pretty good.
I did not care for this.
