This recipe is seriously flawed!!! The amounts need to be half (1 cp molasses, 1 cp shortening, 4 to 5 cups of flour). That is the way Christie describes it in her book and the way the dough comes out. If you follow this recipe on this page you will get a big crumble of dough-goo! I know from experience because I have been building gingerbread houses for years following Christie's recipe in her book. Trying this recipe (twice!) made me realize that the amounts are doubled compared to the original? Why? Besides, you only need "one cup of each" to get enough gingerbread to make this house.
