I’m in love with these cookies!
They are flavorful and crunchy and PERFECT!
I do not remember where I got the recipe- if you recognize them from
your blog let me know. I’d like to thank you profusely for sharing the recipe!
I have a log in the refrigerator and I’ve been making a dozen a day.
If I made more, I’d eat more.
Here’s a great recipe for wonderful tea cookies!
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 TBS molasses
1 TBS hot strong coffee
2 3/4 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ground cardamom
2 tsps ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped candied ginger peel
Cream together butter and sugar, add coffee and molasses, and
mix well. Sift dry ingredients together and add to wet mixture.
Stir together until you have a smooth soft dough. Knead 3 times
on lightly floured surface.
Refrigerate covered for at least 1 hour.
Either make into a roll and slice or roll out thin and cut into
Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes and cool on wire rack.
Careful- they are addictive!
