In Response to Re: That Special recipe exchange.:
I just want to thank eveyone... Every recipe looks great, I can't wait to try each and every one of them. It's a good thing I like to bake on my days off, these will keep me busy cooking and running and working out, but I know it will all be worth it. So the next one I am posting were one of my favorites because of the dollop of ginger frosting on top. My grams had to make a batch with frosting and a batch without frosting just for my grandfather. Soft Ginger Drops 1 Cup soft oleo (butter) 1/2 Cup of sugar 1Egg 1/2 Cup of molasses 1 Tsp. Baking soda dissolved in 1/2 cup of hot water 2 2/3 Cups of twice sifted flour 1/2 Tsp. Salt 1Tsp. ground ginger 1/2 Tsp. Nutmeg 1/2 Tsp. ground clove 1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon Mix together thoroughly the oleo, sugar, egg and molasses. Stir the soda solution, sifted flour, salt and all the spices together. Then stir this in with the egg mixture and blend well.Drop by teaspoonful at least 1" apart on a greased cookie sheet and then chill for at least 1 hour. Then bake in a 400 dg. oven for 5-6 minutes. Frosting: Melt 6Tbl. of butter in a saucepan, remove from heat and stir in 2Tbl. flour and 1/8 Tsp. salt. Slowly add 6 Tbl. of milk. Boil for 1 minute stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in 1/3 Tsp. of Vanilla and 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar. I hope everyone enjoys!
