• 2 eggs
  • 3/4 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 Cup molasses
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 21/4 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.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F; cool slightly. Cut into 1/2-inch slices with serrated knife and arrange cut sides down on baking sheet. Reduce heat to 200°F and bake for 15 minutes; turn and bake 15 minutes more. Cool completely.
