You have been asking me a lot about my diet, and what I eat, so I decided to explain it more in this video. Besides the grocery tips I made these really delicious ginger cookies and I have the recipe for you as well. It’s very simple and very fast to make – which basically describes every one of my recipes. I am not an experienced cook, so I have to keep things simple. Making these cookies reminded me of Christmas again. I used to really enjoy the time when my mom was baking the Christmas cookies and I was just hanging out with her in our tiny kitchen and chatting about all kinds of things. It was quality time that we spent together. Baking is so relaxing I got so relaxed yesterday that I started to talk about tattoos. I am very curious about your opinions. I just wanted to let you know that I will do exactly what I want anyway I am a stubborn Taurus.
If you try the recipe at home, let me know how it turns out for you, and if you have any thoughts or strategies about shopping for food please share it with me and everyone below. Enjoy!
You will need these ingredients: 1 egg, 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, 2 tea spoons of natural molasses, 1/2 cup of raw cane sugar, 3/4 cup whole wheat four, 1 1/2 tea spoons ground ginger, 1/2 tea spoon ground cinnamon, pinch of baking soda, pinch of salt. Oh, and I have also used about 2 handfuls of oats.
Mix together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
In another bowl, stir butter and almost all of the sugar except 2 table spoons – leave that for the end. The butter has to be soft and the sugar should be mixed in very well.
Beat the egg and add it to the mixture.
Mix in molasses.
Add dry ingredients and keep mixing until you get cramps in your arm
I added 2 handfuls of oats for more texture and it turned out very well. Don’t forget to mix it in very well.
Shape the dough into 10 to 12 balls. I had 11 of them, but it depends on how big you want them to be. I think that mine were the perfect size. I flattened them a little bit and they flattened more in the owen. If you add the oats and the dough is thick then you will have to flatten them yourself before you bake them.
Sprinkle the remaining sugar over the tops of the cookies before you put them in the preheated oven. Bake at 375 °F (190 ºC). Leave them there for about 20-25 minutes. They should be crunchy and crinkly on the top and doughy inside.
Enjoy your ginger cookies and remember to share with your loved ones. Eat one at the time as a treat. I mean it!
