“Mamma I have a suggestion for your next baking project.”

This sentence is enough to scare me!

I go off baking!
But it was Christmas time!! The request was for Gingerbread Cookies.
Thought I was not sure if they will like the cookies accepted and said “#FireUpYourOven“.
I was quite surprised they liked it but then the hint of ginger in these cookies was tantalizing not overpowering as I assumed.
I choose to make them molasses free as I do not have access to molasses. I assume with molasses will taste just as awesome.

Gingerbread Cookies

Source: Here 
  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ½ cup Maida/APF
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • ½ tsp clove powder
  • ½ tsp nutmeg powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger


  • Cream together softened butter, brown sugar and white sugar till it becomes pale.
  • Beat in the egg.
  • In a separate bowl blend the dry ingredients.
  • Blend in the butter mixture until well mixed and your dough forms a ball.
  • Flatten the dough and wrap in cling film and refrigerate for at least ½ an hour.
  • Once ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180C/ 350°F.
  • Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface till about 1/8 inch thick, cut in shapes (I did not).
  • Transfer on a lightly greased mould keeping space in between the cookies as they will spread.
  •  Bake for about 7 minutes or golden brown around the edges.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Once cool,you can frost them or eat them plain. In my house we had them plain.

    I like the spicy taste of ginger but others hate it. So I have been skeptical about trying these…
