°1/4 cup brown sugar
°1 cup molasses
°1 teaspoon vanilla
°2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
°1/4 tsp salt
°1 teaspoon baking powder
°1/2 teaspoon baking soda
°1/2 tsp ginger
°1/2 cup milk
°3 tablespoons raisins (optional)
Set the oven to 350°F.
Melt the fat in a microwave-safe dish (about 30 seconds to 1 minute, must remain lukewarm).
In a bowl, combine the first ingredients, molasses, brown sugar and fat with an electric mixer. The consistency should be smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix again.
In a second bowl, combine the dry ingredients, flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and ginger.
Add the dry ingredients to the creamy ingredients alternately with the milk. Start by adding the flour and finish with the flour. Add raisins (optional). The end result should be a smooth paste.
Leave to rest for 5 to 10 minutes, the dough will thicken slightly, while you prepare the cookie sheets. Prepare 2 cookie sheets by applying parchment paper.
Bake for 15 minutes (do not overcook). Let cool and store the patties in a plastic bag to maintain the moist texture. Makes 12 patties.
