    Default Gingerbread Mix

    Gingerbread Mix


    7 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
    1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
    3 T. ground cinnamon
    2 T. baking powder
    2 T. finely chopped crystallized ginger
    1 T. ground ginger
    1 T. salt
    2 tsp. baking soda
    2 tsp. dried orange peel
    1 tsp. ground cloves
    2 cups vegetable shortening


    In a very large bowl, combine the first 11 ingredients. Using a pastry blender, cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Store in an airtight container in a cool place. To give as a gift, place about 3 1/4 cups of mix in each of 4 resealable plastic baggies (4 gifts). Give with instructions to make the cookies.

    To make gingerbread cookies: Pour the mix into a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup molasses, 2 T. brewed coffee, and 1 lightly beaten egg. Beat until well blended. Roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness on a floured surface. Cut out with cookie cutters. Place 1-inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes about 12 cookies using "gingerbread boy" cookie cutters.

    This would be a good jar mix to make and attach a gingerbread man cookie cutter to the outside of the jar
