Here's the recipe as I received it.  My mods are at the end.

1/2 c molasses (i use blackstrap)  and also used less than 1/2 c
2/3 c hot water
1/2 c raisins
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking soda
1.75 c ww pastry flour

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine molasses, hot water and raisins.  Boil for
5 min and then cool to room temp.

Mix remaining ingredients and stir thes into cooled molasses mixture.

Make spoonful size cookies and plaace on sprayed coolie  sheet.  I use
olive oil spray.

Bake for 10 min.


I used regular molasses and I did use 1/2 cup.  I didn't wait for the
mixture to cool either.  I didn't think it would hurt the other
ingredients.  I use a scoop to make cookies uniformly and the scoop is
one of those European ones.  It holds 1.5 T liquid, so the cookies were
good sized.  I used parchment paper on my cookie sheet and that worked
just fine.  The cookies are the cakey type and really were great.
