22 Dec

Spicy and Crisp Gingerbread Cookies (adapted from Extra-Spicy Gingersnaps at http://www.foodnetwork.com)

  • 2 1/2 c. einkorn flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. spicy paprika or cayenne
  • 8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into tiny pieces
  • 1/2 c. coconut sugar
  • 1/2 c. unrefined dried whole cane sugar
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/4 c. molasses
  • 2 egg whites

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the dry ingredients (first 8 ingredients). In the Assistent mixer, cream the butter and sugars until smooth using the cake batter whisks. Add in the egg whites one at a time. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the mixer with the wet ingredients. Once batter is uniformly mixed, you can refrigerate the batter for one hour to firm it up or spoon out 1 inch balls onto parchment paper on cookie sheets. The cookies spread out and get much larger, so give them lots of space.
