Eggtoberfest was truely great. All of the great people, all of the great food, WOW![p]Many people have asked for the recipe for the Gingerbread Cookies I made. These are REALLY simple and the dough can be frozen, so you can make them almost anytime ... kids seem to love them![p]Gingerbread Cookies[p] 2/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp ground ginger
pinch salt
3/4 cup molasses
1 egg
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

Cream together first 6 ingredients. Add egg and mix. Add molasses and mix again. [p]Mix together flour, baking powder and baking soda in a separate bowl. Sift. Add to the creamed mixture and stir until well blended. Role into 1 inch balls and chill.[p]Using a class, flatten on aluminum foil (I recommend the Renolds Release "non-stick" stuff) anout 1 inch appart. Cool on preheated pizza stone at about 375-400 degreesfor 10 minutes or until done.
Let cool for 5-10 minutes or until they firm up!

    Smokey,[p]The cookies were a delight. Kind of a palate-cleanser between all the exotic flavors (I started off Sat morning with a garlic snail for breakfast and had moose for lunch..so a gingerbread cookie ((Atkins be damned)) was a nice grounding effect![p]Good to see you and yours.[p]mShark

    Sorry for the typos ... I'm still a little sleepy![p]You can replace the last paragraph with:[p]Using a glass, flatten on aluminum foil (I recommend the Renolds Release "non-stick" stuff) about 1 inch appart. Cook on preheated pizza stone at about 375-400 degrees for 10 minutes or until done.
    Let cool for 5-10 minutes or until they firm up!
