I was introduced to these little goodies via a friend who anonymously dropped them on my doorstep.  They were gone in no time, and when I finally found out who they had come from I immediately had to make a batch myself.  These are the fifth batch Ive made in about two weeks.  We are addicted.  Not great for the waste line, though!
These are the ingredients:  Honey, brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, flour, eggs, salt, baking soda, butter and cloves.  I like Sue also forgot some ingredients in the picture.   Oops....wheres the butter and baking soda?

My daughter Bekah has really gotten into this with me.  She practically can make them blind folded!  

Shes become quite a pro at this!


I have to be honest.  Ive had this mixer for about four years and it hasnt seen much work until recently.  Im not much of a baker thats for sure!

And of course I have to use a vintage cooling rack!


I used a couple vintage pieces as my display pieces.  First was this antique soapstone bed warmer.  Ive always had a soft spot for these pieces and I thought it would be fun to use it as a serving piece.  
The additional embellishment is a different style of stove burner like Laurel used for her Christmas trees.  Love how this one looks like a flower!  I just added a miniature vintage ornament to it.
This scale was purchased from Ms. Sue herself.  Shes passed onto me her passion for them and I love using it for serving.  The dishes the cookies sit upon are vintage restaurantware Fire King and they date from the 50s or 60s.
And just for a little extra to the display, I added these awesome vintage Pyrex lab jars.  I have to say they are quite cool!  And of course adding new is okay, too, so I incorporated this little tree with the bells on.
There you have it!  All done up ala-junk style!  Come and get it!

Heres the recipe!  Thanks, Marjorie!  If you make them, please let me know what you think!

My turn :-) And I have a recipe that was created by Minnesota's own Marjorie Johnson, the famous Marjorie Johnson that has been seen on The Tonight Show and the Today Show. She's a local gal from Minnesota. If you've had the chance to see her, she is definitely a hoot! I've taken her award winning recipe, and I've added my JUNKMARKET twist to display them!
