Oh My Heart!  | Food  | Cookies

Twenty four days later. I'm doing better.

Four days left to go for the wedding. (I know it's still 5th of May but it's not so wrong to omit today! Ermm, well and don't count the final, 10th of May!)

Some of you cannot imagine in what kind of a rush I can be.
And some of you know it so well!

Oh my! I've never worked that much hard and never done such a lot of house work in a week! Clean there, tidy those, pheww!!! All decoration is finished (thx God!) Tomorrow the washing machine and the fridge are coming. My bridal dress is ready in my wardrobe but I'm still waiting the designer to bring the veil at this time of the day! (10 pm here!)

I needed to give a break to re-charge my flat batteries, and urge my butt (oops!) to the kitchen to make some healthy(!), sugar-free, diet cookies!

I'm not sure if it is correct to use the term of "sugar-free" for these cookies; however I didn't use any white or brown sugar. Just fresh, home-made grape molasses (which doesn't contain any white or brown sugar: only the natural sugar that grapes have itself) is used to sweeten. We love those hearty cookies! At least a thousand time better/healthier than any other "diet store-biscuits"!

Whole Wheat Molasses Cookies

Ingredients

100 gr butter (softened)
1/3 cup grape molasses (natural/home-made/additive & sugar-free if available)
1 egg
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup whole wheat flour**
1 cup plain flour**
1/2 cup wholemeal**


Method

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 C/ 350-375 F. Line your cookie trays with parchment.
2. Mix butter, molasses, and egg with electric mixer till the batter turns smooth.
3. Add cinnamon, ginger and stir well.
4. Sift all flour and baking powder, then add the flour mixture cup by cup till it gives a smooth dough which can be rolled. **So the amount of the flour depands on the brand you are using. And it's just up to you to choose a kind of flour or a mixture**.
5. Roll your dough thinly (about 0.4 inches/ 1 cm -or less if you like). Cut it to any shape you like. (There is only 'heart' shape left at home :D)
6. Cook them till they turn golden brown.

These cookies go well with anything but black tea (esp. with Earl Grey to me... Spicy vs Citrus). If you don't have any problem of diabetes you can also enjoy it dipping to lingonberry jam!
