Molasses Sugar Cookies
Delicious, simple cookie! I used 1 cup shortening and 1/2 cup of butter. There is no greasy taste. I only refrigerated the dough for an hour. Because I have soft and crisp cookie lovers in the house, the first batch was baked exactly 8 minutes for a soft chewy cookie. The second batch was baked for 10 minutes which made for a crispier cookie. For the spices, I used a Saigon cinnamon and allspice instead of cloves. These cookies just need a couple of minutes to cool when coming out of the oven and they are ready to go! (Even kids like them!)

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes
What a great seasonal recipe! I was low on crystalized ginger, so I used ground ginger (about 1-1/4 teaspoon). I made cinnamon cream cheese frosting, adding a small dollop to each cooled cupcake. I finished them off with a small batch of caramel rum glaze drizzled on each one. Everyone loved the cupcake. It was so moist, rich and delicious. It will be put in the regular rotation.

Caramel Frosting IV
This recipe is delicious and simple. I used others helpful hints and made some adjustments myself. One, constant stirring is a must! Sifting the confectioners sugar will also help avoid grittiness. I melted butter just below medium heat, then added brown sugar and adjusted heat to medium to bring to a boil. I mixed a combination of dark and light brown sugars together to get more "caramely" flavor. I also used half n half instead of milk. I spread this over a banana cream cake and got RAVE reviews. Mmm.
