Molasses Honey Ginger Cookies

MMMMM----- Now You're Cooking! v5.84 [Meal-Master Export Format]

Title: Molasses Honey Ginger Cookies
Categories: cookies, desserts
Yield: 0 servings

1 c shortening
1 c sugar
1/2 c molasses
1/2 c honey
2 egg yolks
4 c all-purpose flour
1 ts baking soda
2 ts baking powder
1 ts salt
1 tb cinnamon
2 ts ground cloves
2 ts ground ginger
1 ts ground nutmeg
=== FOR THE ICING ===
1 c confectioners' sugar
1 tb melted butter
1 tb milk
1/2 ts vanilla extract
Liquid food colorings
Colored sugars

Cream together the shortening, sugar, molasses and honey in a bowl with an
electric mixer. Add the egg yolks and mix well.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices; stir
into the shortening mixture. Wrap the dough in plastic and chill well.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out
shapes with Christmas tree and/or other holiday cookie cutters; transfer
to lightly greased baking sheets.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes. (Do not
overbake.) Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets until they are firm,
then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Beat confectioners' sugar, butter, milk and vanilla until smooth, adding
more sugar or milk as needed. If desired, divide icing among smaller bowls
and tint with different food colorings. Decorate cookies with colored
icings and sugars.

This recipe yields 3 dozen medium-sized cookies.

Comments: This cookie is versatile, so I adapt the shapes and decorations
to the season -- jack-o'-lanterns at Halloween and eggs at Easter.
