    • Dash teaspoon Allspice

      Gingerbread Cookies

      • Preheat the oven to 180C/360F. Line and grease 2 baking trays.
      • Using a blender/food processer place all the wet ingredients in a bowl and mix til combined. Alternatively a kitchen stand mixer with a blade attachment can be used or it can be done by hand with a big spoon/whisk and a strong arm.
      • Add the dry ingredients and blend on low until a nice dough forms. Scrape down the edges of the bowl at least once to make sure all the ingredients are incorporated.
      • Take heaped Tablespoon amounts of mixture and form into a ball. This recipe will make
      • approx. 24 cookies, depending on how generous your scoops are.
      • Place the ball on the tray and, using your palm or a spoon, flatten 2/3 the way down. The cookies will only spread a little bit. Repeat and use the other trays. Sprinkle with sugar.
      • Bake the Soft Gingerbread Cookies for 15 minutes.
      • Allow to cool on the tray and then eat lots! Cooled cookies can be kept in an airtight
      • container but they will soften the longer they are left (so eat more!)
      • They taste amazing dipped in whipped coconut cream!!
