It’s Time for Cookies at Raleigh Tavern

Barbara-Scherer-GingercakesAt Historic Foodways, we’re venturing into new territory.  But the subject is all about nostalgia. Some 30 years ago, the smell of freshly baked gingerbread cookies filled the air at the Raleigh Tavern.

Now we’ve been asked to re-create fresh baking at the tavern kitchen We’ve spruced it up and we’re baking gingerbread cookies by the hundreds.

Our friends at the Making History blog were there to record the first fragrant morsels that came out of the oven.

So come by and see us — and try our cookies.

And if you’re curious about the recipe. …

    When I worked in Historic Foodways I had many visitors ask me about the cookies we used to make at the Raleigh, though not authentic from period sources, it was a good recipe to make. If you wish to make them at home go to the recipe index on this blog and click on “To make ginger cakes” and you will find my original comments from a few years ago and the recipe to make the “old” cookies we used to bake at the RTB from 1952 until 1985. Since I was the last full time historic trades baker there I felt everyone out there with a yearning for the old cookie should finally have it. Give them a try.
