Front of the recipe card for Soft Ginger Bread.

There are no cooking instructions for this recipe and based on the ingredients I am assuming they are for cookies and not actual bread.

Note that the only instructions within the recipe are to mix the spices with the boiling water to dissolve them and nothing more than that.

Vintage Kitchen Tools, Dishes, and Cookbooks

I love vintage dishes and kitchenware and on the weekends I can often be found in a thrift store poking through the shelves to find vintage treasures to use as props for our photography for the site. Click here to view Vintage Kitchenware on Etsy.

You can always find treasures on sites that sell used items such as Vintage Cookbooks on eBay and Vintage Cookbooks on Etsy

Every once and a while you can find a good cookbook with Vintage Recipes on Amazon. I don’t have any recommendations as I haven’t bought any as I prefer the handwritten recipes that you see on our site.
