i also decorated a couple of candle holders. i saw the idea here and decided it would be fun and/or festive. i might as well do this kind of thing while i can, eh? fire and glass will need to be kept well out of reach next year.

the other side of the piece will show a few examples of my work. i'm hoping it will be effective enough to get my name out there.

we debated between the gingersnaps and an apple pie. in the end, the snaps won. it's time consuming to make the full recipe, but they freeze well, so we've got some profits for weeks to come.
- 1 1/2 cups shortening
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp ginger
- 4 1/4 cups flour
- 3 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/2 tsp cloves
- cream shortening and sugars
- add molasses and eggs; beat well
- sift together dry ingredients; add
- mix well
- roll dough into small balls; roll balls in sugar
- place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets
- bake 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees
makes bunches, so after "taste testers" have performed their job, there will be plenty to share or freeze

if i could drop everything and go camping this weekend, i would definitely stop by the grocery and pick up the ingredients for these gooey treats. i guess all i REALLY need is a firepit, but alas, our postage-stamp of a yard probably doesn't have the necessary space. (in reality, i could probably use the oven, but that just seems like cheating!)
on the upside, we have plans to visit mike's brother and his family, and they DO have a firepit...
get the recipe here. found via here.
