So my most delicious spicy Christmas cookies from last Christmas were so delicious, I decided to enter them in a Christmas Cookie contest. And- go figure!!- they won 2nd place!
Here's a link to the Magazine's Facebook Page (I don't think they have an actual web-site...)
So here is the recipe again (especially since the magazine made a huge mistake- sigh! Dubai, what do you expect?)
2 cups fine whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cardamom
1 cup turbinado sugar
In a large bowl, blend together:
12 tsp. salted butter (not warmed)
1/4 cup of unsulphered molasses
Slowly blend the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Form a cylinder with the dough and wrap it in parchment paper. Refrigerate at least one hour. Slice into 1/4" thick rounds (makes about 40 3" cookies). Decorate with sanding sugar. Bake for 7-10 minutes at 350.
These may actually be the most delicious cookies I have ever made...
