How to make it
- Whisk the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.
- Whisk the melted butter and brown sugar together in another medium bowl until just combined. Add the whole egg, egg yolk, and molasses and whisk thoroughly. Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the molasses mixture until combined. Stir in the raisins. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Using a rubber spatula, divide the dough in half and place both halves on the lined baking sheet, 4 inches apart. Shape each half into a log that measures 14 inches long, 2 inches wide, and 2 inches high. Brush the logs with the beaten egg white.
- Bake 20-25 minutes, until the tops of the logs have browned and spring back when touched. Set the pan on a cooling rack and cool for 15 minutes. Transfer the logs to a cutting board. With a sharp chef's knife or serrated bread knife, cut the logs crosswise into cookies about 2 inches thick. When the cookies have completely cooled, dust with confectioners' sugar if desired.
