  • 281g AP Flour
  • 5g Ground ginger
  • 4g Baking Soda
  • 2g Ground Cinnamon
  • 1g Ground Cloves
  • 1g Salt
  • 172g Butter
  • 192g Sugar
  • 50g Eggs
  • 15g Water
  • 88g Molassas


Sift dry ingredients together. Cream butter and sugar together until just pale. Gradually beat in liquids. Add dry ingredients all at once and mix on low until just combined. Scoop onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and chill for 2 hours. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes, turning halfway through.

Once baked and cooled, you can either eat the cookies as they are or create cookie sandwiches using your favourite local ice cream! Once you’ve created a sandwich you can dress up your sammies by rolling the visible ice cream in sprinkles or chocolate chips or roasted and salted nuts. You can make it an interactive part of the meal for your family too!


Looking at the small things that make life great and the people who create them.
