Google knows nothing about lassy mogs. Hopefully this entry will fix that.

In an earlier era in Atlantic Canada, the “lassy mog” was a classic home-baked treat. Its charming name is derived from the local dialect for the region’s widely used sweetener, molasses (“lassy”) and a small, low-rising cake (“mog”).

So there you go. I’m surprised I didn’t hear anything about them when I lived in Newfoundland, but they’re pretty good cookies.

Update: Recipe found. See below.

Update update: That isn’t actually the recipe. The closest thing we’ve found is hermit cookies. Also, creating accounts here is pretty freaking easy.. what’s with all the anonymous posts?
