These cookies are very flavorful, not at all like the typical oatmeal cookie. If Sorghum isn't available in your neck of the woods, you can certainly substitute Molasses. For those that like raisins or chocolate chips, add as necessary. Some of our family doesn't appreciate the taste of chips or raisins, so I make some plain, and some with.

Why make such a huge deal out of the raisin thing?? My entire family hates raisins. I've passed this recipe over dozens of times simply because of that. That's fine that some enjoy raisins, but many don't! Why is there no option to leave them out, or instructions as to how to go about leaving them out? Not very accommodating, so I guess I will pass once more.

I bought some sorghum at local farmers market. I went searching for recipes to use it in. I like to try new things, in this case old things. This is a great recipe. Very flavorful, sweet, and different from typical spice or gingerbread cookies and also different from oatmeal. I had bought some oat flour and used half and half oat and all purpose flour, worked great. Mmmmmmm, an instant family favorite.
