Time to fill the Christmas plate.

Whoops I have flour on my hands..and sugar on my lips..tee hee
I do love dough!!



  1. Anyone have a yummy recipe for linzer cookies? I got a set of Christmas linzer cutters at a garage sale this summer, would love to have a tried and true recipe. . .

  2. Here's one of our family favorites - great for gingerbread people - very tasty!

    Lydia's Swedish Ginger Cookies

    1/2 cup shortening (part butter for flavor), 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar, 1 egg, 1 cup molasses, 1/2 cup cream, grated rind of one orange, 5 cups sifted flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. ginger, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ground cloves, 1/2 tsp. ground allspice, 1/3 tsp.salt, 1/4 tsp. white pepper
    Mix first 6 ingredients together thoroughly. Sift flour & remaining ingredients, then stir into molasses mixture. Chill thoroughly. Roll out to 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick & cut out cookies. Place 1 inch apart onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes about 8 dozen medium cookies. Note: the baking time will vary with the thickness & your oven, so check often at first! After baking & cooling, decorate with white icing & cinnamon red hots. If you want to hang them on your tree, roll out the dough thincker (1/4 inch) & poke a hole near the top before baking for a ribbon hanger.

    I think this came from Woman's Day magazine many years ago. Lots of ingredients, but easy to make. I like to chill the dough overnight.
