Retro Ginger Shortbread Cookies

We are in the holiday SPIRIT. Everywhere you look there’s lights and presents and candy canes. It brings back so many warm and fuzzy memories as well as not so warm last minute shopping anxieties…One thing that will always bring the jolly is…cookies! Today we have made for you a cross between a gingerbread cookie and a shortbread. We used to make this recipe all the time and it’s always a no-fail. It has very few ingredients and comes together in a snap.

I don’t know if anyone has ever flicked through a 1960’s Betty Crocker Cookbook. These cookies were definitely inspired by the slightly creepy baked goods you would find among-st the sandwich loaves and jello molds. We think we succeeded on the creepy front. But don’t be too scared! These cookies will give you a rumbly in your tumbly this holiday season even if they’re kinda strange….

2 cups brown rice flour

2/3 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

Pinch of sea salt

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp cloves

2 tsp cinnamon

Combine flour, salt and spices. Make a well in the middle and dump in maple syrup and oil. Stir until a dough forms. Form into flat cookie shapes on a parchment lined baking sheet. Decorate as you wish. Bake for 12 minutes at 350F. Makes about 20.
