    We need something to bake!! We just bought a fantastic GE Gas Range, we cook with propane and the range that came with our house had been abused, leaked propane terribly, could never hold it's temp, and smelt like plastic so we bought a gorgeous stainless steel GE and we love it to pieces!

    I've already done gingerbread and shortbread cookies -- Anyone have some great recipes that are easy, use those "lying around" ingredients, and taste great?

    Props for low fat/calories too!

    If you have a recipe, throw it my way!

    I'm not fussy on what we bake as long as it tastes great. We spend a lot of time at home and have been snowed in a few times so we're building a recipe book for home.

    For everyone, things we already bake are...

    Gingerbread
    Shortbread Cookies (came from the Wyoming U Law faculty cookbook from like 1980 something)
    Bread in the bread maker
    Sugar Cookies
    Oat and Apple muffins


    I'm still looking for a great chocolate chip cookie recipe, something that is nice and soft and gooey!

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to this thread. I was busy downloading picts.

    Breakfast Cake:

    1 cup sugar 2 cups flour
    1/2 cup shortening 2 tsp. baking powder
    1 egg 1 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 cup milk (or more)

    Blend shortening, sugar, & egg.
    Add remaining ingredients, & beat well. I add more milk because it is just too thick otherwise.
    Pour into a well greased 8" pan, I use a round one.
    Bake at 350 for 30 - 35 minutes.

    To change up the flavor I use different extracts, such as maple or orange.
    You can also sprinkle the top with sugar/cinnamon mix.

    Sure thing!

    Shortbread

    1/2 cup of butter, room temperature
    1/4 cup + 2 1/2 teaspoons of sugar
    1/4 teaspoon of salt
    1 1/4 cups of flour

    Preheat oven to 275* F. Cream the butter with the sugar. Stir in the salt and flour a little bit at a time. Gather the dough intoa ball and flatten onto a greased baking sheet to height of 3/8 inch. Prick the dough all over with a fork. Using a knife, score the dough into wedges, but cut only halfway through the dough. Bake at 275* F for 50 minutes until firm but pale in colour. Let cool for 15 minutes before cutting into wedges.

    I don't do the whole wedges thing, I don't like the way it looks and its not very eatable lol. I like to roll it out like Gingerbread and use a small round cookie cutter to cut the cookies into little round cookies. They don't spread really so they come out looking beautiful and I always sprinkle some sugar on them halfway through baking. I also do mine a bit thicker than they suggest. Out of this recipe as-is I get about a dozen round cookies.
