I'm actually in the midst of a bit of a cooking marathon. I've got marrow bones in the crock pot for 24 hour beef broth, I made Murgh Kabuli for lunch, I've got green beans steaming, and I just finished making these ginger spice cookies.
I've still got to make hard boiled eggs and hamburgers, but I thought I'd take a little break. :)
I've tried to make ginger spice cookies before and they were a dismal failure. I have been trying to clean out a completely full notebook of mine, and thus I came across the failed recipe today. With a few tweaks, I had success! So here you go.
These cookies taste light and not too sweet. I think with raisins they'd make a great fake oatmeal raisin cookie!
SCD LEGAL (ITALIAN) GINGER SPICE COOKIES
2 cups almond meal (I used the Trader Joe's brand)
1/3 c palm shortening
1/3 c honey
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon or allspice
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp salt
Grease two cookie sheets with extra shortening. Beat all ingredients together and drop onto trays, about 2" apart or so. Bake at 325 (or 300, depending on your oven) degrees for about 15 minutes -- watch the bottoms for burning. Cookies should be evenly golden brown.
Makes about 14 cookies.
Let them cool completely... if you can wait that long. We couldn't. :)
EDITS: I changed the temperature, and I added the word "Italian" to the recipe. I am Italian, so I figure I'm allowed. LOL.
