I revised a recipe from Dr. Ornish's Reversing Heart Disease. The
Molasses Cake on page 541 always came out gummy. I turned it into
Cookies and everyone gave it the thumbs up.
1/2 CUP MOLASSES
2/3 CUP HOT WATER
1/2 CUP SEEDLESS RAISINS
1 TEASPOON GROUND CINNAMON
1/2 TEASPOON BAKING SODA
1 3/4 CUPS UNBLEACHED ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the molasses, hot water,
and raisins. Bring to a boil and let boil for 5 minutes. IMPORTANT
(Cool to room temperature)
In separate bowl, sift the remaining ingredients together. Stir
this into COOLED, molasses mixture until smooth.
Make spoonful size cookies on a cookie sheet sprayed with PAM or
similar spray. Sprinkle top of cookies with brown sugar.
Bake 10 minutes. Each stove is different so you can determine what
the best cooking time is for you.
