SPICED COOKIES



For most of my friends, cookies were served  during festivals  (Eid,  Lunar New Year or Christmas) but not in my household. We are serving them regularly as our tea time treat.

I  recently bake these Spiced Cookies  and my family raved about them because they are unusual and delicious.  However this cookies is my to go. Simple, easy and loaded with warm spices.

Would  definitely prefer to bake in a smaller portion to maintain freshness but you can easily double up the quantity if needed.  I also make use of orange colored sugar  instead of white one.

To speed up the process, you can leave the butter on your counter  for few hours prior to baking or else use your microwave oven to soften it a little.

Another combination of spices could be added to the dough are nutmeg, cinnamon or mixed spices.


SPICED COOKIES
Yield   :  25 cookies

1 cup all purpose flour
90 g softened butter
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1  tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 1/2 cup rolled oat for topping
1-2 tablespoon ice water if needed



METHOD

Cream butter and sugar until well combined.

Add in flour,  baking soda, ginger powder and cardamom..

Mix well and forms into soft dough. Add 1-2 tablespoon of ice water if needed.

Preheat oven @ 170 C

Shape into small ball and roll in oat, flatten slightly.

Place them on  baking sheet, complete the rest of the dough.

Bake for 15 minutes  or until lightly browned.

Leave in the pan for 5 minutes, transfer onto rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container.
