Usually I feel that if a dessert doesn’t have chocolate, it isn’t worth it. But this recipe, from my grandmother’s recipe box, has been a staple in our family’s homes for generations.

Serves 12.

¾ c. margarine
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp ginger
½ tsp allspice
4 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda, dissolved in ½ c. water
1 tsp baking powder


Icing Sugar
Boiling Water


Combine margarine, brown sugar and eggs. Add remaining ingredients. Shape into three logs. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

Pour glaze over the logs while still hot.
