Gingersnaps

Cute and easy and great with coffee/tea/chai 🙂 This recipe also makes a lot of them, so they are good to package up as gifts if you like!
I made them for a Christmas dessert which I will have to post the recipe for later; with limoncello gelato! They are great if you need cookie/graham cracker crumbs and want them home made.

Ginger Snap Cookies

Ingredients;
100g butter
100g white sugar
¼ tsp fresh grated ginger
1 egg
210g flour
2 tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp baking powder

Instructions:
Soften the butter and beat the sugar and grated ginger until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg gently until combined. In another bowl, mix together the flour, ginger and baking powder. Add a spoonful at a time into the butter mixture. If you are using an electric mixer, you may have to finish this off my hand. Form a dough a chill for about half an hour.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line few baking trays, but don’t fret if you don’t have many; just do it in batches like me!  Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it is about 4mm thick. Cut with your desired cookie cutter and transfer to the trays, leaving a bit of a gap between each one. Bake for about 20 minutes, until nice and golden and the cookies shift when nudged. Cool in wire racks and store in an airtight container. You could dust with icing sugar or ice then if desired.
Makes a good 70 odd, if you are using a small cookie cutter. Lasts (when untouched) a few days.

Have a wonderful week everyone!
