Vellum can be tricky to adhere because the adhesive can show through.  The banner was adhered in the middle area, and on the main image the adhesive was covered with strips of the Gold Foil.

Today I'm getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday which means I baked a double batch of Big, Soft, Ginger Cookies – recipe is below!

Every Blessing and Ginger Cookies1

My nephew, Theron (far right with my son Joe in the center and my niece Georgia on the left) has Galactosemia and can't have any dairy.  No dairy in these delicious cookies!


  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
Combine flour, ginger, soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt: set aside.
In a large mixing bowl beat shortening with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds to soften.  Gradually add the 1 cup sugar; beat till fluffy.  Add egg and molasses; beat well.   Stir dry ingredients into beaten mixture.
Shape into 1 ½” balls.  Roll in the 2 tablespoons sugar and place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 ½” inches apart.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or till light brown and still puffed.  (Do not overcook.) Let stand for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.  Cool.  Makes 24 three-inch cookies.  These cookies soften even more a day after baking.
