Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Family Friday Returns - Gingerbread

This recipe is one that was shared by my Mother In Law.  Her mother always made this for Sunday dinner because it was a favorite of her husband.  Per the recipe card, this recipe is over 100 years old.  My Hubby, who doesn't like ginger cookies, was pleasantly surprised that he liked it.  So was I - until I realized that this recipe does not actually contain Ginger.  Serve alone or with whipped cream.  Makes 16 servings.

  1/2 Cup Butter                                                   1 Tsp Cinnamon
  1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar                                   1/2 Tsp Salt
  1 Large Egg, Beaten                                          1 Cup Molasses
  2 1/2 Cups Flour, Sifted                                      1 Cup Hot Water
  1 1/2 Tsp Soda                                                                        

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x9x2 inch pan.

Cream together shortening and sugar.  Add beaten egg.  In another bowl, measure and sift dry ingredients.  In a measuring cup, combined hot water and flour.  Add dry ingredients and water mixture alternately, a little at a time, to the shortening mixture.  Beat well after each addition.  Bake for 45 minutes.
