"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."

Cut into circles about 3 inches in diameter using a cookie cutter or drinking glass. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookies sheets. Place a raisin onto the center of each cookie.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

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.
