Gingerbread Love

And I had but one penny in the world.  Thou should'st have it to buy gingerbread.
~William Shakespeare "Love's Labour's Lost"

Cream sugar, molasses, & shortening.  Add ginger,soda in water and flour, flour, flour... 

Knead in more flour.  Roll out dough...
Cut out shapes

Bake @ 350 degrees


Finished just in time for Master Horatio Rabbit's tea.
