Lebanese Gingerbread Cookies

Lebanese Gingerbread Cookies

These cookies are a family favorite of ours and are sure to win over even the toughest fans in your house. While this recipe calls for Carob Molasses, any molasses will work as a substitute. In our house, I grew up with Carob Molasses so that is what I use for recipes that call for it. I remember mixing it with tahini and eating it with Pita Bread as a real treat.

Ingredients needed are:

3 Cups Sifted Flour

1 Tablespoons Ginger (add less if you see fit, this amount makes the cookies have a distinct ginger flavor)

1/2 Tablespoon Baking Powder

1/2 Tablespoon Cinnamon Powder

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 teaspoon Salt

3/4 teaspoon Ground Clove

3/4 teaspoon Ground Allspice

3 oz butter (6 Tablespoons) (softened)

1/2 Cup + 1 teaspoons Sugar

1 Egg

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Extract

1/2 Cup Carob Molasses (Any Molasses will work)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In separate bowl, SIFT ALL THE FLOUR, add ginger, baking powder, cinnamon, soda, salt, clove and allspice
  3. In a Kitchen Aid Mixer bowl, cream butter for 30 seconds
  4. To Mixer, add sugar, egg and vanilla extract and beat until mixed
  5. On low, stir in the Carob Molasses
  6. Slowly add the flour mixture and beat on low for 1 minute and scrape down the sides
  7. Roll onto a floured surface and cut
  8. Bake 1 sheet at a time for 8-10 minutes, watching so they don’t become dark brown
