Hi Vicki! Thank you so much for letting me be on your blog today to talk about my newest release, Demon Lore.
'Tis the season for sweets and these cookies hold a special place in my heart. My friend's grandmother used to make them for us when I was a child. We'd go to visit and she would bake us these cookies as we'd play. When I got older, I asked for the recipe and she was kind enough to give it to me. To me, they taste more like molasses cookies than gingerbread ones, but I love molasses. And gingerbread. Okay, pretty much any sweet. <g>
Gingerbread Cookies by Mrs. Maggie W.
7 1/2 cups flour
1/2 + 1/8 cup Crisco
2 cups molasses
2/3 + 1/3 cup oil
2 1/2 tsp ginger
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
7 1/2 tsp baking powder
Black raisins, candied cherries or almonds if wanted
Mix, chill at least 2 hours. Slightly flour board (to keep dough from sticking) and roll out dough. Cut and place on a slightly greased cookie sheet. I use a gingerbread man cutter. Bake at 250 for 5 to 7 minutes.
