This is my mothers molasses cookie recipe.. They are very good. A very old fashioned recipe, no one will ever guess the secret ingredient. For a fun variation, substitute maraschino cherries for the raisins.

  • In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and lard. Gradually mix in the egg, and molasses. Sift together the flour, baking soda, ginger, dry mustard, instant coffee, and cloves; stir this into the creamed mixture alternately with the milk.

  • Drop cookie dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Press a raisin or maraschino cherry into the center of each one. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
