    • 2 eggs
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup molasses
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 1/4 cups flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 cup California raisins
    • 3 tablespoons chopped crystallized ginger


    Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two 9×4-inch baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

    Measure flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt into a small mixing bowl and stir together well; set aside. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, sugar, molasses and vanilla together until smooth. Add to dry ingredients, a little at a time, and mix together until stiff dough. Stir in raisins and ginger. Turn onto lightly floured surface and divide in half. Shape into balls and place each piece on a prepared baking sheet. Flatten to form rectangle about 1/2-inch thick.
