Christmas is very soon, so why not make these delicious and chewy ginger cookies? They’re a great alternative to the classic gingerbread cookies, except they’re much easier and quicker to make!
These cookies don’t require rolling out and cutting out into different shapes like the gingerbread ones do, but they are just as tasty and full of flavor! So if you’re not a fan of baking gingerbread cookies, this is the recipe for you 😃
After baking these ginger cookies, it’s hard to eat just one, because they’re sooo good! All of the delicious spices and aromas are just so characteristic for the holiday season, that they might as well just be called Christmas cookies!
And here is a behind the scenes photo of my dog being curious about the cookies 😂
- 2 cups flour
- 1-2 tablespoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons molasses
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 150 g butter
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup sugar + a few tablespoons of sugar for coating the cookies
- Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Using a mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar. Next add in the egg, honey and molasses and keep mixing until everything is incorporated.
- In a separate bowl combine the flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix on a medium-high speed just until everything is combined (do not over mix).
- Form small balls out of the dough and coat in some sugar. Place the cookies on a baking sheet leaving some space between each one.
- Bake the cookies for around 10-12 minutes. Allow them to cool for at least 5 minutes and enjoy!
