Deliciously spiced and topped with beautifully sparkling crystalized ginger, these decadent cookies are a treat that look as good as they taste.

Ingredients

1 cup 250 mL brown sugar
3/4 cup 175 mL butter, softened
1/4 cup 50 mL molasses
1 egg
2 ½ cups 625 mL Robin Hood® Nutri Flour Blend™ Tastes Like White
2 tsp 10 mL baking soda
1/2 tsp 2 mL salt
1 tbsp 15 mL ginger
1 tsp 5 mL cinnamon
1/2 tsp 2 mL clove
1/3 cup 75 mL finely chopped crystallized ginger
Extra flour, for rolling
Coarse sugar, for decorating

Directions

  1. Cream brown sugar, butter, molasses, and egg thoroughly on high speed of electric mixer. Add remaining ingredients, mixing until combined. Divide dough into two, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Tip

    Let your little ones help you shape and decorate these sparkly treats.

  4. Roll dough on very well floured surface to ¼” (0.5 cm) thick. Cut with well floured  2” (5 cm) cookie cutters. Place on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with white coarse sugar, if using.
  5. Tip

    Let your little helpers pick out their favourite cookie cutter shape. And they can make sure the cookies are well-cut by giving them an extra press down.

  6. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned around edges. Let cool on pans, 5 minutes, then remove to cooling rack.
