Farm Christmas Cookies!

Here is a great shortbread ginger recipe. I made these with a Brown Bag Shortbread cookie pan...with these great animal figures. This is the first time I have used this pan and they worked out great.

Ginger Shortbread

1/2 cup butter at room temperature
1/4 cup light brown sugar-packed
3/4 teaspoon ginger
1 cup flour - unsifted
1 Tablespoon corn starch

Cream the butter. Cream in the brown sugar and the ginger. Now work in the flour and corn starch. Knead the dough on an board until nice and smooth. Cook at 325 about 30-35 min or until brown.
