Am I Giving You Enough Time? Gingerbread Muffins

We have had a lot of team participation going on in the house lately. Which isn't a bad thing.....

My daughter made these gingerbread muffins while I was in school, and I took the pictures.

Gingerbread during the holidays is a must, right? Gingerbread is a scent that has been captured in oils and candles, but why not have the real deal going on in your kitchen? And this one can be eaten.

A gingerbread muffin is perfect for the holidays. You don't have to worry about cutting a cake in equal pieces. Just grab a muffin, top it with whipped cream, and you are good to go. And perfect for children too.

Great-Grandma's Gingerbread

2 1/4 all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. salt
Dash ground cloves
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. shortening
2/3 c. molasses
1 egg, beaten
3/4 c. boiling water

Combine flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, salt and cloves; set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream sugar and shortening. Add molasses and egg; mix well. Stir in the dry ingredients alternately with water; mix well. Pour into a greased 9 inch square pan, or cup cake liners. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 35-40 minutes (will be less with cupcakes. And I forgot to ask my daughter the baking time). Cool completely. Top with whipped cream.
