As some of you may know, ginger is not only praised for its taste, but also improves your health. Especially, with all the heavy xmas foods, why not prepare some ginger cookies that are delicious and help digest the fatty items.
Here is the recipe:
250 g unsalted butter
125 g sugar
200 g ground almonds
300 g wheat flour
small amount of salt
1/2 teespoon baking powder
2 pck vanillin powder or some vanilla essence
250 g candied ginger, cut into small bits.
First, prepare a dough with all ingredients, except, the ginger. Once dough has reached uniform texture, add ginger, and knead until it is well mixed in.
Then form rolls, about 1″ in diameter, wrap in aluminum foil and put into the fridge over night.
Take out one roll after the other, and cut into about 1/4″ thick slices. Should look about like this (note the space between the cookies, don’t place them too closely on the tray).
Bake at 165-170°C in a air-convection oven. Sure, other types of ovens can be used, at medium heat. Bake until slighly brown at the edges. This will take 10 to 12 minutes. Handle with care after baking – let them cool down before any major handling.
These cookies are ready to eat right after preparation, so no need to start with xmas baking in November.
