|I love a good piece of gingerbread with a cup of mint tea. The receipt I like best is found on page 67 of "The King's Bread, 2d Rising."
Combine 2.5 cups of flour, 1 tsp of ginger, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, and 1 tsp of baking soda in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup of molasses, 1/3 cup of butter, and 1/3 cup of boiling water. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients.
Knead dough until it is stiff. Chill thoroughly for about fifteen minutes. Roll out on a floured board. You can either bake it in one piece, or cut it into cookie sizes. Then bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Be sure to start checking them
at about ten minutes. They will cook more evenly if you poke holes in them with a fork or tooth pick before you put them in the oven. Enjoy!
