Could I use this batter to cut out different shapes of cookies?

Maria Koutsogiannis

100% you can!

Rebecca

I know some people like to use fresh ginger, why aren’t you using fresh ginger?

Maria Koutsogiannis

I don’t typically use fresh ginger in cookies unless it’s to be more aromatic! I don’t want it to be too overpowering! And because I love Simply Organic spices!

I was wondering if you could give some advice for GF and Vegan? My friend recommended you… I’m vegan and my housemate is GF… Maybe you can recommend a recipe of yours with these restrictions, we are looking to bake! I love your blog

These are delicious – perfect for traditional holiday baking!! The molasses, ginger, and cloves create a
great contrast with each other, and the dough was very easy to work with!

Gingerbread cookies are my go-to holiday baking, like every Christmas! I tried your recipe and it’s my new favorite recipe, I will keep coming back to this recipe, no more trying new recipes, this is it! Thanks!

Mattias

So good!! I made a big batch to share with friends and family for the holidays and they all messaged me to say how much they loved them. Thank you, they are one of the best recipes I’ve tried yet!

Rachel

So fluffy and soft!! I used freshly grated ginger instead of the 1/2 spoon of powdered because fresh ginger is the only way to go with ginger cookies, I like them with an extra kick!

Maria Koutsogiannis

I made these earlier today and they turned out amazing! I substituted the 1 egg with a flax egg which worked out for me pretty well. Super delicious cookie! I love simply organic products too!
