4 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. shortening

1/2 c. buttermilk
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. molasses with 1 tsp. soda stirred in
2 whole eggs
1 1/2 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. baking powder

1 to 1 1/2 quarts dried apples
ground cloves, nutmeg, allspice and sugar to taste


Cut shortening into flour, add all other ingredients (except dried apples and spices) and mix.

Pour onto floured board, divide into six equal size balls. Pat each ball into a lightly greased skillet. Pierce with fork 4 or 5 times.

Bake at 350 for 12-13 minutes or until slightly brown. Cool on towel. Stack with dried apples.

Cook dried apples with enough water to cover apples. When apples cook down they should be tender. Mash with potato masher. Add ground cloves, nutmeg, allspice and sugar to taste.
