Make-It Monday

Today I am giving you 2 recipes. I made both of them yesterday and really liked each of them. Give them a try!

Mini Meatloaves

1 Lb   Hamburger
1 pkg   Stove top
1 tsp   Italian Seasoning
1 cup   water
3/4 cup   pasta sauce
3/4 cup   shredded cheese (you choose the flavor)

Mix hamburger, stove top, seasoning and water. Put into 12 greased muffin cups. Use a spoon to indent the top of each loaf. Fill with pasta sauce. Cook at 375F for 30 min. Add cheese and cook 5 more minutes, or until cheese melts.

Giant Gingersnaps

4 1/2 cups   flour
2 tsp   baking soda
1 tsp   salt
4 tsp   ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp   ground cloves
1 1/2 cup   shortening
2 cups   sugar
2   eggs
1/2 cup   molasses
3/4 cup   sugar for rolling

In bowl, mix flour, soda, salt, ginger and cloves. Set aside. In mixing bowl, beat shortening until soft. Gradually add sugar, beat until fluffy. Add eggs and molasses. Beat well. Add half of flour mixture. Beat until combined. Stir in remaining flour mixture with wooden spoon. Roll into 2 inch balls, roll in sugar. Place 2 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes at 350 F until light brown and puffed. Drop sheet on counter to even out. Cool for 2 minutes on pan, then move to cooling rack.
