These Ginger Chews are a classic recipe that are made even tastier with the complex flavour of our Flourist Sifted Spelt Flour. Use a small cookie scoop as these will spread into a thin and chewy cookie.
3/4 cup (170 g) butter, room temperature
1 cup (198 g) granulated sugar
1 large egg
4 tbsp (85 g) molasses
2 cups (276 g) Flourist Sifted Spelt Flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp ground ginger
Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a standing mixer with a paddle attachment or with a hand blender, beat together butter and sugar. Add egg and molasses and beat until smooth. Stir together the dry ingredients, and then add to the batter and mix until well blended. Scoop using a small sized cookie scoop onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them nice and far apart from each other as these will spread quite a lot. Flatten with a measuring cup dipped in sugar.
Bake for 10 minutes before turning and baking for another 2-3 minutes until the edges are golden.
