Gingerbread bars

Even though it is still 90 degrees here in L.A., I can still pretend that it’s fall,right? I decorated my house, got out sugar and spice candles, and made my very first batch of Gingerbread Bars. These are one of my all time favorite fall-y recipes. They are super easy and oh-so-yummy!

Gingerbread Bars

3/4 c. shortening

2 c. flour

1 c. sugar

2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. cloves

1 tsp. ginger

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 c. molasses

1 egg

2 tbs. sugar

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In large saucepan, melt shortening, cool 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, except for the 2 tbs. sugar. Press in bottom of 9×13 pan. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake for 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into bars. Enjoy!
