Gingerbread Egg Nog Chess Squares


I am really proud of myself on this recipe. This is my very first baking recipe that I completely created on my own. I am really good at creating Savory dishes with a pinch of this and a dash of that. Baking is a whole different matter! There is the need for precise measurements and all that science and chemistry

1 package Pillsbury Refrigerated Gingerbread Cookie Dough
4 eggs lightly beaten
2 cups of sugar
1 tbs flour
1/2 cup butter softened
1/4 cup Egg Nod
1 tsp Vanilla

3 heaping tbs brown sugar
4 tbs melted butter
grease and flour a square 9 x 9 pan take half the Gingerbread dough and roll out to approx 1/2' thick lay in the bottom of the pan pressing down to cover the whole bottom (if you have to piece meal it together that is ok it will adhere during baking) In a mixing bowl cream the 1/2 cup of butter and the 2 cups sugar add in the eggs vanilla and egg nog blend til combined stir in the nutmeg and salt pour on top of the gingerbread bake at 350 for 30 min meanwhile in a food processor pulse the Gingerbread Oreo's until they become crumbs (or put them in a baggie and whack them with a rolling pin) in a bowl combine Oreo Crumbs and brown sugar and melted butter remove pan from oven take the other half of the Gingerbread dough and pull small pieces off and place dabs of dough on top of filling.
