ginger A healthier twist on a traditional cookie. Try to buy organic dried ginger, as ginger is one of those foods that tends to be heavily contaminated with pesticides. At Christmas I try to make my baking a little healthier but still use some organic white flour. Some of those Christmas cookies are just not the same without it.

 

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup butter or coconut oil                                           
  • 1 cup unrefined raw cane sugar
  • 1 egg                                                                                     
  • ¼ cup organic molasses
  • 1 and ½ cup spelt flour                                                   
  • 1 cup white organic flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda                                                 
  • 2 teaspoons dried ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger                                             
  • 1 and ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ cup crystallized ginger cut into small pieces                  
  • zest from one lemon

Preparation:

  1. Cream butter or oil with sugar.
  2. Add egg and molasses.
  3. Add lemon zest, fresh ginger and crystallized ginger.
  4. Mix both flours, baking soda, cinnamon and powdered ginger in another bowl.
  5. Add the butter mixture.
  6. Using a small scoop or spoon make small mounds and portion onto a cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes at 350°F. Let cool for a minute or two before removing from sheet.
