Almond Sectional 2015

We had a great time. This was Barbara Page’s first time running the show and she did a great job! Our unit and Merced’s all pitched in and brought food and supplies. There was no danger of going hungry.

Winners won wine donated by Delicato Family Vineyards through the efforts of Chuck Silva.  I will be posting pictures of winners in a few days.

I was asked for recipes for the ginger-molasses cookies and here it is:

Molasses Cookies (I credit my niece Caitlin for these. She showed me how to make them when we stayed in Monterey.)

Sift together:
4 cp flour
2 t baking soda
2 t cinnamon
2 t cloves (allspice OK)
2 t ginger

Cream together:
3/4 cp butter
2 3/4 cp sugar
Slowly add 2 eggs
1/2  cp molasses
1 t vanilla

Add dry ingredients. Break dough into small pieces. Roll into balls and toss them in cinnamon sugar. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes
