Ask the Cook For Ginger Creams — Delightful Cookie Treat By NAN WILEY I'm always delighted when someone isn't afraid to bring me a sample of their cooking or baking and not be like the woman who gasped, "Oh. I just wouldn't dare, not with a good cook like you!" Believe me. I'm just a home cook who has been at it so long and acquired such extensive files and book shelves I've picked up most of the tricks. I remember the young thing who burbled, "Oh. I'll bet you have all sorts of different and exotic things for dinner every night." Yes I do: cheeseburgers, spaghetti and meat balls, broiled steak or chicken, meat loaf, roast beef with vegetables and the like. Truffles and champagne are not staples in my cupboard. I am not fond of champagne and the only truffles I have ever eaten were canned ones. Then there are the individuals who ask. always with a somewhat pained expression, "Do you like to cook?" You bet 1 do, I love it. I wouldn't be spending so much of my life experimenting and writing about it if I didn't. Liking to cook is what makes a good cook. All of this is the long way around to tell you about some cookies a friend of mine brought over the other day. They are called ginger creams, a soft cake-like frosted _ cookie and I thought they were so good 1 asked Odessa for the recipe. They didn't take a lot of sugar either. Cream together '4 cup soft shortening, Vfe cup sugar, 1 egg and '2 cup molasses. Dissolve 1 teaspoon soda in '2 cup hot water and stir in. Sift together 2 cups all-purpose flour, '2 teaspoon salt. 1 teaspoon ginger, '-.• teaspoon nutmeg and l /z teaspoon cloves. (Or you can use 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice in place of the other spices.) Add. Chill the dough thoroughly, then drop rounded teaspoons of it onto greased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake about 7 or 8 minutes a 400 degree oven just until cookies test done. Do not overbake. Frost with a powdered sugar icing while warm. Makes about 4 dozen 2-inch cookies. These are so easy to put together and so good with coffee, tea or milk. Because it fits so well here I can't resist repeating a little poem I featured in Volume II of "The Best Of Let's Ask The Cook:" "A house should have a cookie jar for when it's half-past three and children hurry home from school as hungry as can. be. There's nothing quite so splendid in filling children up as spicy fluffy ginger cakes and sweet milk from a cup. A house should have a mother waiting with a hug, no matter what a boy brings home — a puppy or a bug; for children only loiter when the bell rings to dismiss and no one's home to greet them with a cookie Delicious cookie recipes are included in Nan's booklet, "Cookies. Anyone?". To get your copy, send 25 cents and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope to Nan Wiley in care of Of Women's Council Sunday. April 6. 1975. THE HERALD.

To eat, or not to eat - that is the question; Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous foodstuffs Or to take arms against a sea of conniving physicians, And by opposing confuse them. To eat, to stuff thyself No more;. . .ay, there's the rub! And so, to every poor suffering human that is forced to forego the joys of lemon pies, homemade bread, great huge pasta dishes, my sincere condolences.
