cinnamon, ground
1/2 c
butter or margarine

3 Tbsp
1 tsp

1Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly grease baking sheet(s)

2In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, oats, baking powder and cinnamon

3Cut in the butter until mixture is evenly distributed

4In a food processor, blender, or with a chopper, chop the raisins

5In a separate bowl, stir together sour cream and egg. In another bowl, mix molasses and baking soda. Stir into the sour cream mixture. Add chopped raisins and stir

6Add sour cream/molasses mixture to the flour mixture, and stir into a stiff batter

7Chill in the freezer for about 15 minutes, until easier to handle

8Shape into walnut-sized balls. This can be easier if your hands are slightly wet
