Baking Success Or Baking Mess

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter OR margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark molasses
3 eggs
3-1/3 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoon Fleischmann's® Baking Powder
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup chopped, toasted slivered almonds
1/4 cup finely chopped, toasted slivered almonds, optional

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350º F.


Beat butter or margarine with the sugar and molasses in a large bowl until well blended. Add the eggs.


Combine the flour, baking powder, spices and 1 cup almonds in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat thoroughly.


Divide dough in half. Shape each into a log about 13 inches long. Flatten slightly to 1-inch thick and about 2-inches wide. Place rolls 4 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup almonds, if desired.


Bake loaves for 15 to 20 minutes, until browned and puffed. Cool 15 minutes.


Cut rolls crosswise, 1/2-inch thick, using a sharp or serrated knife. Place slices, cut side down, on baking sheet.


Continue baking until toasted a slightly darker color, and firm and dry to the touch, about 15 to 20 minutes more.


Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.


Recipe Note: To toast almonds: arrange chopped almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place in 250º oven for approximately 10 minutes, until slightly browned. Cool.


TIP: Store up to 3 days in a tightly closed container, or freeze.
