Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Lightly grease baking trays.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Stir in the treacle. Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger; stir into the treacle mixture alternately with the milk. Finally, mix in the chocolate chips and raisins. Drop heaped spoons of the batter onto the prepared trays.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking tray for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
These cookies taste just like Christmas! They remind me a bit of Jamaican Ginger Cake. I only used 300g of chocolate chips as 675g seemed like a lot. I also added half a tsp of ground nutmeg. The recipe misses out the ground cloves in the method section, so don't forget to add it with the other spices! - 22 Dec 2013
