I know it's been so long since I posted, I must get back in the swing of things.
I've been busy baking and decorating the house. I want to have a stress free Advent.
These are recycled mason jars from Classico sauces, a great size. I put the Epsom salts in the bottom and use a pair of tongs to drop the tea light in, wrap a bit of ribbon around the rim and you have a nice festive candle holder for a really reasonable price.
3/4 cup hard margarine
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup fancy (mild) molasses
2 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
Cream margarine and first amount of sugar together in a large bowl. Add egg. Beat well. Add molasses, beat until smooth.
next 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Add to margarine mixture in 2
additions, mixing well after each addition, until no dry flour remains.
Roll into 1" balls. Roll each ball into the second amount of sugar until
coated. Arrange 2" apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350F for 10
minutes, or until firm. Cool on wire racks.
