    GINGER COOKIES
    If you enjoy having fresh, warm cookies around the house, this recipe is for you--you can keep the dough in the refrigerator for several days and bake it as needed. Makes about 4 dozen.

    3/4 cup shortening
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg, at room temperature
    1/4 cup molasses
    2 cups flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ginger
    1/2 teaspoon cloves

    Combine shortening, sugar, egg, and molasses; mix well.
    Sift together dry ingredients.
    Add to molasses mixture; mix well.
    Chill dough 1 to 2 hours.
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Form 1-inch balls; dip in sugar.
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes.



    Shaker Lemon Pie
    This is a simple, but unusual recipe from the Shaker community of the past. You will see that the true flavor of the lemon is in the rind.

    2 Uncooked 9-inch pie shells (freshly made or frozen)
    2 Lemons, large
    2 cups Granulated sugar
    4 Eggs

    Slice the whole lemons (peel and all) into paper thin slices (a mandolin slicer works well).
    Remove any seeds you may see.
    Toss the slices with the sugar.
    Allow to rest 3 to 4 hours, stirring frequently.
    Beat the eggs and add them to the lemon mix.
    Place the mixture in one of the pie crusts (inside a pie pan).
    Invert the second crust over the pie to form the top crust.
    Seal the edges and trim off any excess.
    Place a small slit in the top crust.
    Place in a pre-heated 425 oven for 15 minutes.
    Reduce the temperature to 350 and cook for 20 minutes longer or until the pie is lightly browned.
    Serves 8

    GREEN TOMATO PIE
    Wow--something to do with green tomatoes besides fry them! Try this recipe on anyone you know who loves fruit pies, and don't tell them at first what's in it. They'll love the pie--and be astonished to learn that the primary ingredient is tomatoes. Serves 8.

    Unbaked pastry for 9-inch 2-crust pie
    1-1/4 lb green tomatoes (about 5)
    3/4 cup raisins
    1-1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    1 tbsp cider vinegar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup sugar
    3 tbsp flour
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/8 tsp ground ginger
    1 tbsp fine breadcrumbs
    2 tbsp butter or margarine

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash tomatoes; cut in quarters and slice
    very thin. Put into a 3-qt bowl; stir in raisins, lemon rind, lemon
    juice, vinegar, and salt.

    Blend sugar with flour and spices. Line pie pan with pastry; sprinkle
    evenly with breadcrumbs. Add 2 tbsp of sugar mixture. Add remaining
    sugar mixture to tomato mixture.

    Turn tomato mixture into pie pan, spreading evenly. Dot with butter.
    Moisten rim of pastry and lay on top crust. Press gently all around to
    seal. Trim and crimp edges. Bake 15 minutes; reduce heat to 325
    degrees and bake 50 minutes longer. Cool on rack 2-3 hours before
    serving.



    BROWN SUGAR PIE
    I know it's hard to imagine making a pie that requires an entire pound of brown sugar. But the incredible, caramelly results, served warm with a dollop of slightly sweet whipped cream, are truly marvelous.
    Serves 8 to 12.

    9-inch unbaked pie shell
    1 pound light brown sugar
    4 tablespoons flour
    3 eggs, at room temperature
    3/4 cup melted butter
    3/4 cup Half and Half

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and flour.
    Beat in eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl after each addition.
    Gradually add butter and Half and Half; mix until well combined.
    Pour into pie shell; bake 40 to 50 minutes, until set.

    SHOO-FLY PIE
    No wonder bakers of the past had to shoo flies away as this pie cooled in the window--it's more than a little sweet. But it's also delicious, quick, and easy to make, and a real trip back through time. If you wish, you can serve pieces of the pie topped with whipped cream.
    Serves 8.

    1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
    1/2 cup molasses
    1/2 cup boiling water
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1-1/2 cups flour
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup butter

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    Mix molasses, water, and baking soda.
    Pour into pie shell.

    Cut together flour, sugar, and butter with a pastry blender or two
    forks, until mixture resembles crumbs.
    Sprinkle over molasses mixture.
    Bake 25 minutes, until crust is browned.



    LOADED COOKIES

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup butter
    1 cup dark brown sugar
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup cooking oil
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 1/2 cup rolled oats
    1 cup coconut
    1 cup raisins
    1 cup semisweet chocoloate pieces
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    DIRECTIONS:
    In a bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt, set aside.
    In a very large mixing bowl, beat butter with electric mixer 30 seconds.
    Beat in sugars, oil, eggs and vanilla.
    Add flour mixture, beat till well combined.
    Stir in rolled oats, coconut, raisins, chocolate pieces and walnuts. Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie
    sheet.
    Bake in a 325 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or till edges are lightly browned.
    Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet and transfer to wire racks to set.

    Question

    Frozen banana mousse

    3 bananas
    2 eggs
    3/4 cup milk
    1 tbs flour
    pinch of salt
    3 tbs sugar
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla
    1 1/2 cups cream

    Beat eggs well with sugar,salt and milk and cook in a double
    boiler until thickened. Cool. Put peeled bananas in blender
    with vanilla and puree. Whip until thick. Combine all ingredients
    and put into individual glasses. Place in freezer for 2 hours
    before serving.

    You can make a puree of cooked and dried apricots in place of the
    bananas or add a few tablespoons of grated coconut or chopped nuts.
    Or you can use canned fruit well drained.

    If anyone in Ohio has ever been to Zoar village, this recipe comes from there. It's a village that was founded in the early 1800s as a religious community, and most of the original buildings are still there and have been restored. It's a very pretty place, and there's a fantastic used bookstore and a tavern that serves really good bratwurst.

    Zoar ginger cookies:

    1 cup shortening
    2 eggs
    2 cups sugar
    1 t. salt
    1 & 1/2 t. cinnamon
    1 & 1/2 t. ginger (yes, these amounts are correct, these cookies are spicy!)
    1 & 1/2 Tb. baking soda
    1 Tb. baking powder
    1 t. vanilla
    4 & 2/3 cups flour
    1 cup molasses

    Cream shortening, eggs, and sugar. Add spices, salt, baking powder and soda, vanilla, and half of the flour and half of the molasses. Beat well, add rest of flour and molasses. Roll out on floured board, cut with cookie cutters. Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes or until cracks disappear from surface of cookies. Bake less time if softer cookie is wanted. Makes about 40 cookies.

    Some people don't like these because they think they're too spicy, but I think they're wonderful. They're especially good dunked in coffee or hot chocolate, so I never put icing on them.
