Heat molasses and water to boiling point. Add shortening. Add dry ingredients mixed and sifted. Chill. Roll very thin and cut. Bake about 10 minutes in a hot oven. A note earlier in the cookbook suggests a hot oven should be in the range of 400-450 degrees (these recipes were devised for the ovens of wood stoves, apparently.) Id say to go with 400F. Very crisp. Very gingery. Source: "Baking Made Easy" Occident Flour cookbook, 1923 * The Polka Dot Palace BBS 1-201-822-3627. Posted by EPONA Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #705 by Lisa Clarke
