DATE & GINGER COOKIES



Cookies are a great accompaniment to your coffee or tea. They come in various flavors and shapes. I whipped up these this afternoon using chopped dates.

These proved popular with my guest and family. Loved this recipe, so quick and easy also very low in fat too. It was a definite winner with spicy flavor from ground ginger.

They are wonderful just as it is but you can dress them up with colored sugar or sprinkles if you want.

DATE & GINGER COOKIES
Yield  :   25 cookies

1/2 cup self rising flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
65g butter
1/4 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp ground ginger




METHOD

In a small saucepan, boil butter, water and dates. Cool until lukewarm.

Combine flour, ground ginger and sugar in a mixing bowl.

Pour butter mixture into dry ingredients, forms into soft dough.

Pinch dough and shape into small balls, flatten slightly or roll out dough on floured surface about 1/4 in thick, cut into shapes, dipping the cutter into flour as you go.  Place  cookies  onto baking sheet.

Bake for 15-20 minutes @ 160C. Transfer onto rack to cool.
