1 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon ginger
1 cup milk
3/4 tablespoon soda
4 cups sifted flour


Cream shortening with sugar; add ginger; add milk in which has been dissolved 3/4 tablespoon soda.  Add flour gradually; mix well.  Spread mixture on inverted greased tins, or on a cookie sheet.  Spread as thin as possible – very thin.  

Bake light brown at 375-degrees.  Cut while hot, don’t wait.  Cut moment it comes from the oven.  

Makes a heck of a lot.
