Default WT613 ~ 12/8/16 Cookies Anyone?

Happy Thursday and welcome to this week's Ways to Use It Challenge, Cookies Anyone? Carla here, as your hostess during Cookie Exchange Week. And you thought we couldn't come up with any more obscure holidays!

The first week of December is the perfect time for Cookie Exchanges and I'm here to help you do it in style! Create a recipe card/tag or just include cookies on your card. And for a bonus, share your favorite cookie recipe when you post to this thread. I'd love to hear about the memories associated with the cookies.

My favorite is from my Grandma. She kept a jar full of these marvelous ginger cookies on the counter. When she opened that jar, the smell of those cookies started us drooling. Grandma had 17 grandchildren and we were the luckiest of them. She lived with us, so I got those cookies on a regular basis. I've got her mixing bowl, it looks like the one in this picture, and I think of her every time I use it.


Soft Ginger Cookies
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup molasses
1 cup shortening
2 egg yolks
2 tsp soda in 1 cup thin sour milk or coffee
2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp. ginger
Flour to make a soft dough 4 1/2 - 5 cups

Mix first seven ingredients, add flour to make a soft dough. The dough may be rolled out and cut on floured board (don't roll thin) or it may be spread on a cookie sheet with sides on. Bake at 350. Watch these while baking, check for doneness as you would for a cake.

Ice while still warm with the following icing.
2 cups sugar
1 heaping Tbsp. light corn syrup
5 Tbsp. cold water
2 egg whites

Mix and boil over water in double boiler, beating constantly for 7 minutes or until icing sticks well to beater and holds shape or peaks. To help dry for storage, place in oven that's warm but not turned on.


Can't wait to see your fun creations and get some new cookie recipes. When you're done, upload your card with the keyword WT613, and then come back and share a link in this thread - that makes it easy for people to find your card.

Here's a link to our crafty gallery WT613 Cookies Anyone? Take a look and be sure to leave some love.

If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, and one for this thread
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE

Below are some samples from Lisa, Sabrina and me. Big thanks to both of them for their creative and fun cards!

Here's a link to my card, Cookies and Hugs.

Great challenge, Carla. I only make one type of cookie each Christmas...the ones depicted on my card. It took me awhile to get into the challenge today since, at first, I thought I had to type out the recipe and I really didn't have the time for that. Then I read one could just have "cookies". No bonus pts for me. ; )

Carla, I will likely not have time to create a card but wanted to say what a marvelous challenge you've created. Cookies are definitely a big part of my family's celebration of Christmas. I have this memory of my Mom with two spatulas in her hands- one to scoop up the cookies and the other swatting the 10 children away from the cooling cookies. She had to hide the tins under her bad so that we had a few left when company came by. But they were so yummy and I continue the cookie tradition with my family.

Here is my cookie card (no recipe though)! I make a ginger cookie similar to Carla's except just rolled in sugar and not iced. I got it from a high school friend's grandmother when I was 16.
