Working Method

In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together 2 pounds shortening, 1 pound 8oz molasses, and 1 pound brown sugar until no lumps remain.  Add in 1 pound 8oz eggs and mix until fully combined, scraping down the bowl often.  Add 10 pounds crème cake base, 1 pound 8oz flour, and 1.5oz baking powder and mix until a dough forms, scrape the bowl, and mix for another 30 seconds.  If dough is too stiff, add additional water little by little until desired consistency is reached.  Roll dough to ¼ inch thick, cut into pig shapes, egg wash, and bake at 350F until golden brown.

Chef Tips

To make egg wash, use a ratio of 2:1 whole eggs:water.  For example, for every pound of eggs used, add 8oz water.  Mix together and add a pinch of salt if desired.
