How to make it

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt cinnamon, ginger, and allspice; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar to form a grainy paste.
  • Add molasses and egg, scraping down side as needed, beat until light and fluffy.
  • Add flour mixture and raisins, and blend at low speed until just combined.
  • Divide dough in half and form into logs 1-1/2-inch in diameter.
  • Wrap both logs with wax paper and chill in refrigerator for 2 hours.
  • After dough has chilled, preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Remove wax paper and slice dough into 1/2-inch size pieces.
  • Place pieces flat side down 1-1/2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 25-27 minutes until cookies are set.
  • Transfer cookies immediately to cooling surface.
  • Icing:
  • In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer.
  • Mix in vanilla extract.
  • Gradually stir in powdered sugar, until well blended. Store in refrigerator after use.
  • Using a small spoon or knife lightly spread a small circle of icing onto center of each cookie.
  • This recipe makes approximately 44 cookies.
