  • Christmas baking

    the cookbook forum has been pretty dead lately, so I thought i'd try to get things going again with some christmas recipes. It's not even december yet, but as far as i'm concerned it's never too early to start baking and eating christmas goodies (especially the eating part!! )

    Ginger bread cookies

    mash together
    1/4 cup butter
    1/2 cup white or brown sugar (i find brown works best)

    beat in
    1/2 cup molasses

    3 1/2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 tsp. cloves
    1/2 tsp.
    2 tsp. ginger
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    mix together with
    1/4 cup water (more if needed)

    roll out flat and cut with cookie cutters. bake in 350F oven for about 8 minutes.

    Very easy icing
    so simple even *I* can make it!!

    1/4 cup icing (confectioners) sugar
    a little bit of water
    couple drops of food coloring
    spread on cookies with spoon or knife

    thats it!

    enjoy, and hopefully post some of your favorite christmas recipes!!

    Hey, good one David and right in time for the holidays. I love ginger bread cookies. I'll have to compare this to the ones I've made in the past and see how it stacks up. Looks pretty good.

        that's the way i always seem to cook, throw everything in a pan / bowl and mash it

          Hey David, I have an idea. You bake the cookies, and I'll put on a pot of coffee. Even *I* can do that.

              A White Christmas!
              by Ed_L
              It's snowing pretty good now, and has been for a few hours. I was beginning to wonder if we would get any snow this year. I hope you have a white Christmas too, if you're in a region where you get it.

              Trips to put you in a Christmas mood
              by Ed_L
              I caught part of a TV special on some of the botanical gardens which were dressed up for Christmas, and I thought I'd pass this along.
              The MO botanical gardens in St. Louis was one of the gardens featured, and I know there are at least two of you from St. Louis. This looked like an excellent...
