A good recipe that is a cross between a ginger snap and a soft cookie. The amount of spice gives them a good bite. Try them with ice cream for a special treat.
Take three pounds of flour, one pound of sugar, one pound of butter rubbed in very fine, two ounces of ginger beat fine, one large nutmeg grated, then take a pound of treacle, a quarter of a pint of cream, make them warm together, and make up the bread stiff; roll it out, and make it up into thin cakes, cut them out with a teacup, or small glass; or roll them out like nuts, and bake them on tin plates in a slack oven.
Note: This recipe can be halved to make it workable in most kitchens.
