Favorite Holiday Cookie

Hi Friends,

Sorry I’ve been quiet lately, I had to make my way back to the states for a family emergency but now that I am back on the RoK (Republic of Korea)  I’m here to share my NEW favorite cookie recipe. Yes, that’s right, I just tried this and immediately fell in love with how easy, quick, and tasty these are! It’s not my personal recipe but one I stumbled upon during an internet surfing binge. These also are easy to multiply, meaning it’s a great cookie to make a double batch of.

Once these are all baked they should be a little crispy but have a soft chew on the inside. I am certain these will be a hit at any holiday party or cookie basket. If you love them too, don’t forget to comment below.

Ginger Crinkle Cookie

2 cups of all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 cup vegetable shortening

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup of molasses

1 large egg

1/2 cup of  turbinando sugar

Step One

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Step Two

In the bowl of a stand mixer (using the paddle attachment) mix together the butter, shortening, brown sugar and granulated sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Step Three

While your butter mixture blends, wisk together in a separate bowl the flour, all spice, cinnamon, clove, baking soda, ginger and salt

Step Four

Add your molasses and eggs to the butter mixture until combined then one scoop at a time add your flour mixture and mix on low-medium speed until you don’t see any more flour. Roll into 1 inch balls and roll in your turbinando sugar.

Step Five

Place your cookies on a baking sheet two inches apart and bake for 5 minutes. Rotate the pan in the oven so they bake evenly and then bake for 5 more minutes. Be careful not to overbake because they quickly will become rock hard if left in too long.

Step Six

Let your cookies cool for AT LEAST four minutes on the cookie sheet. Then move to a cooling rack until completely room temperature.

There you have it! A beautiful and delicious holiday cookie recipe that will leave you with some big fans. I ended up making about 5 dozen for a holiday cookie mass bake that our spouse group is participating in. But more to come on that later. As always, share your comments below and HAPPY BAKING.
