Many years ago the boys took a gingerbread cookie decorating class with a local chef (Matt Prentice) who shared his recipe with us. I have NOT made this recipe but the cookies the boys decorated were excellent! We were told that a gingerbread house could be made using this dough. YMMV

Cream together:
1# shortening
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed

Chill until firm, roll out to 1/4" thickness. Bake in preheated oven at 325 degrees until golden brown. Cool.
