Just in time for the Holidays. Nice fall and winter warmth of ginger and pumpkin with a hot cup of Tom & Jerry.
Got the dough mixed up, rolled into a log and in the freezer for about 30 minutes. (I was in a hurry)



Sliced 1/2" off of the log. Coated with some white sugar.



Flattened between folded parchment paper.





Out of the oven. Oooh that smell.



Gingersnap Cookies

Ingredients
* 3/4 cup shortening
* 1-cup golden brown sugar (firmly packed)
* 1 egg
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 4 Tbsp molasses
* 2 1/4 cups flour
* 2 tsp baking soda
* 3/4 tsp ground cloves
* 1 tsp ground cinnamon
* 2 tsp ground ginger

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream together shortening and brown sugar until well mixed, light, and fluffy.
3. Beat together well the egg, salt, and molasses and then mix these into the above.
4. Sift together flour, baking soda, ground cloves, cinnamon and ginger.
5. Add dry ingredients to first wet mixture and combine well.
6. Make a 2" log. Chill in the refrigerator a few hours or overnight.
7. After chilled, slice 1/2" thick, roll in white sugar (add some cinnamon if you wish), flatten and place on a greased cookie sheet, allowing room for expansion.
8. Bake in 350-degree oven 12 to 15 min. Do not let get too brown. Depending on how hard or soft you want em.

Pumpkin Dip - 'tis the season!
From Tex-Toby over at the the TBBQ Forum

2 cups of powdered sugar
1 8oz package of cream cheese (room temp)
1 can pumpkin pie filling (same size can as you would buy corn, etc...)
1/2 tsp of Pumpkin Spice
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix until smooth and serve with ginger snaps.

I haven't made the dip yet. That's todays plan.
I also see a Holiday Version of a Whoopie Pie in the future.
Stay tuned and as always, thanks for lookin'.

Troy, now I ask, have you seen any night cooks? Laughing
If you got my email by now, I wish you would send me some winter clothes.
Like shorts, tank tops, sandals, you know that kind of stuff?
Oh yeah, can you throw a pair of swimmin' trunks in too?
