First recipe for Christmas
Source : Gourmet Traveller
More than cookies texture is as small cakes and can be made smaller. I wanted to make shaped pines but you can use other molds or make small mounds on a baking sheet.
Mine is a silicone mold.
335 gm plain flour
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed aniseed
1/4 teaspoon each ground allspice, ground nutmeg and ground ginger
pinch ground cloves
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
125 grams butter softened
130 grams bvrown sugar
60 gm blackstrap molasses
150 grams pure icing sugar
pinch each of ground nutmeg and ground cloves
1 tablespoon of water
red,green and white nonpareils for decorating
Sift flour into a large bowl,add spices and bicarbonate of soda and set aside.
Beat butter and sugar with and electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Add molasses and beat to combine, then add egg and beat again. Stir in flour mixture with a large pinch of flaked sea salt. Combine to form a dough and refrigerate for flavours to develop (about 2 hours)
Preheat oven to 160°C (350 °F).
Fill the molds if you will use or roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and place on baking trays lined with baking paper. Baking until just form to touch (18 to 20 minutes)
They'll harden as they cool.
For spiced icing combine sugar,spices and 1 1/2 tablespoon water in a large bowl (it should be a thick consistence) if you want more thick add more sugar
Cover the cookies with the icing and and sprinkle some nonpareils and set aside to dry.
They will keep in an airtight container for 5 days.
