Ginger Sugar Cookies: March 1965


I can’t be *entirely* sure how many this made, because we were down to 32 by the time I counted—-these were really popular with the gaming group!  I made them with Crisco (the recipe said “shortening or butter”) and dipped them in vanilla sugar (instead of regular sugar), since I happened to have it around.  These were really fragile as I tried to remove them from the baking sheet—-they stuck a bit, so I put the second set on parchment paper, but they were still difficult to remove without squashing them. Letting them cool on the baking sheet (which was sitting on a cold stone counter) for a few minutes made them much easier to remove without squashing.

Yield: Approximately 35
