  This comes from a great cookbook that was given to me for Christmas
  many years ago "Christmas Memories Cookbook" by Mystic Seaport
  Members. Many of the recipes in it are fabulous and have become
  Christmas traditions, as well as recipes used all year long. The
  theme of the book is a Victorian Christmas, but few of the recipes
  are actually identified as Victorian. Here's one I could find. If I
  find more, I'll post them.
  
  A 100-year old recipe. The mystery is ours. Who drank the wine?
  
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  
  2. Cream well the shortening, sugar and egg
  
  3. In medium bowl, combine dry ingredients. In another bowl combine
  milk and molasses
  
  4. Add flour and milk mixture. Add raisins
  
  5. Drop by spoonsful onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 15
  minutes
  
  6. While still warm from the oven, dust with confectioners' sugar
  
  One thing the book says is that there were no before dinner drinks or
  appetizers. They apparently were not seen in the US until WW1. There
  may be more suggestions that would help you in the book. If you have
  any questions, e-mail me privately.
