  • 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
