Gingerbread Boys ( This recipe came from the 1973 Betty Crocker Cookbook )
1/2 cup shortening 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup dark molasses 1/4 cup water 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
Cream shortening and sugar. Blend in molasses, water, flour, salt, soda, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Cover; chill 2 to 3 hours.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough 1/4 inch thick on lightly floured, cloth-covered board. Cut with gingerbread boy cutter; place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Immediately remove from baking sheet. Cool. Trim with Decrator's Icing. About 15 ( 4-inch cookies ).
Decorator's Icing: Mix 2 cups Confectioners' Sugar and 1 tablespoon water. Add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until icing is of the consistency that can be used easily in a decorators' tube, and yet hold it's shape. Yield: 3/4 cup of icing.
Note: For a crisper cookie, roll dough 1/8 inch thick. Bake 8 minutes. About 2 dozen cookies.
julieann: A long while back you posted a recipe for Easy Sauce by Reg and Jack Absalom, I just wanted to say thank you so much, and to mention that it is pretty good for making tomato relish. I am an Aussie living in the USA. No easy access to Ezy Sauce.JulieAnn
