Paul Hopp


3 c sugar
1 c butter
2 c sweet cream
3 c dark Karo syrup
c shortening
1 t baking ammonia (get at drug store)
t allspice
t cloves
t ginger
t nutmeg
t cinnamon
1 T anise seed
12 - 15 c unsifted flour

Cream sugar and butter. Add cream, syrup and shortening. Add other ingredients in order given. Bake 12 minutes at 350 degrees.

These take four to five hours to do. I find it easier to take some dough and roll it into a rope about inch thick and then slice off your pieces about one-quarter inch thick.
