Whole wheat ginger cookies

Christmas is soon approaching and it’s that time of the year when I love to enter my kitchen while something is baking with the holiday spice aroma. Ginger cookies are one of my go to cookies with a hot cup of tea. Do give a try and leave your feedback

Ingredients

Wheat flour – 200 g

Powdered sugar – 50 g

Baking powder – 1 tsp

Spice mix ( I used nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves ) – 1/2 tsp

Butter – 100 g

Ground ginger powder – 4 tsp

Caramel syrup – 3 tsp

Method

  • Sieve the flour with baking powder, ginger powder and spice mix and keep aside
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes
  • Beat the butter and sugar using a stand mixer or hand blender or a spatula until it’s nicely blended
  • Add spoonfuls of flour, caramel syrup and mix well to form a dough
  • If you find the mixture is too dry, add a little warm milk or water and mix it
  • This cookie dough will be slightly dry compared to other cookie doughs like sugar cookies or chocolate chip cookies, if you are able to gather a little dough and make a ball then you have reached the right consistency
  • Knead lightly form balls, flatten and place on a greased cookie sheet or a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
  • Leave enough gap for the cookies to spread
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes until the cookies are golden brown
  • Once done cool the cookies on a wire rack

Enjoy these crisp ginger cookies with your Chai 😀
