ABOUT THIS RECIPE
Today, I am sharing. recipe for Gingerbread Squares Mix.
This recipe was always a best seller for me over the holidays when I used to sell food gifts.
Packaged in a gift bag with the recipe included, it's a thoughtful gift to give to someone on your list who loves to bake.
The recipe makes enough mix for two bags/batches.
The recipient would only need to add molasses, butter and eggs to the mix to bake up a beautiful old-fashioned Gingerbread Squares Recipe. The bags that I used in the photo above have a zippered closing and are 6 inches wide by 9 inches high.
You could also gift this mix in a beautiful jar as seen in the photo at the top of the post.
I've included the recipe for the lemon sauce which is over-the-top divine drizzled over a piece of square.
This dessert is best served warm from the oven and it easily heats up for a few seconds in the microwave - or you can enjoy it cold as well!
The squares stay incredibly moist. A slice sampled three days after it was baked was still as fresh tasting as the first day. They are SO good!!
HOW TO MAKE GINGERBREAD SQUARES
Well, it just doesn't get any easier than this!
Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir until well-combined.
Next, divide the mixture in half. You should have 2 and ½ cups of mix for each bag/jar or cake that you are using.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR GIFT-GIVING
I like to slide the bag into a tall cup and wrap the top over the lip of the cup. Then, I use a large-mouth funnel like the kind you would use for making jams and spoon the mix right in.
If you don't have a funnel, then you can easily scoop it in with a small measuring cup.
Print a copy of the recipe below for the recipient or write it out by hand on Christmas paper.
