GINGERBREAD HOUSE DECORATING CHALLENGE!
Gingerbread (for Gingerbread House)
1 1/2 c. vegetable shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. nutmeg
12 oz. unsulfured molasses
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
Vegetable-oil cooking spray
- Make the dough:In a heavy-duty mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl with a hand mixer on medium speed, blend vegetable shortening and sugar--1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Add salt and spices and continue to mix until incorporated. Scrape bowl sides, add vanilla, and mix for 30 more seconds. If using a heavy-duty mixer, add flour one cup at a time. Otherwise stir in using a wooden spoon, kneading in final cups of flour by hand. Divide dough into 1 1/2-inch-thick squares. Wrap in plastic and set aside.
- Cut out shapes:Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Between 2 sheets of waxed or parchment paper, roll each dough half into a 12- by 16-inch rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Lightly coat 1 roof, side, and front template with cooking spray and position them on the dough. Cut out the outlines and windows of the templates, remove excess dough, and set aside. Repeat process, exchanging the front for the back template.
- Bake the Gingerbread:Carefully slide a sideless baking pan under the parchment of one set of cut-out dough pieces. Repeat for the second set. Make sure that the dough lies completely flat and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the gingerbread is firm but not hard to the touch. Cool for 10 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
