Gingerbread Cookie Mix

Gingerbread Cookie Mix
  • 2-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1 tsp. ground cloves

    Mix 2 cups flour with the baking soda and baking powder. Place in the bottom of a one-quart, wide-mouth canning jar. Add the brown sugar next. Mix the remaining 1 cup flour with the spices. Add this mixture last.

    Place a 2-piece lid on the jar. Place a 7" circle of fabric... in a gingerbread pattern, a Christmas plaid, a holiday calico... over the lid. Use a piece of thin ribbon or raffia to secure the fabric topper.

    Tie a gingerbread man cookie cutter on the jar and a card with the following directions -

    Gingerbread Cookie Mix
    Place 1/2 cup butter (softened), 3/4 cup molasses and 1 lightly beaten egg in a large bowl. Mix until well blended. Empty gingerbread cookie mix into a separate bowl and stir ingredients together. Add to the butter/egg mixture and mix well. Dough will be very stiff... Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4" thickness. Cut into shapes with the cookie cutter. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet, 2"apart. To use as ornnaments, use a thin straw to make a hole for a ribbon in the top of each one before baking. Decorate with raisins, cloves, or small cinnamon candies, if desired. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes.
