Ginger Cookies

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It is funny that while I am on my laptop working on my assignment, I feel like posting a recipe, Emm very bad of me.

200 grams salted butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup corn flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons freshly grounded dry ginger

  • Beat sugar and butter till light and fluffy
  • Sift together corn flour and all purpose flour and add ginger to it
  • add the dry ingredients to the sugar and butter mixture and mix using your hand or a wooden spoon
  • use a cutter to shape into cookies, bake in a preheated oven (165 degrees Celsius) for 15 minutes.
I should have these cookies beside me as I'm concentrating (very hard) on my assignment :)

The typical me, spending more than I should away from my favourite blog. I can say it is all due to time constraint, plus I hate spending time downloading photographs, re-sizing them and posting them :).

I feel exceptionally happy when I attempt many recipes of specific dish, and then I come up with my one! is an accomplishment in the food world for ME..:) it has always been..

I try to bake something at home every weekend so my son can have a home made snack (or part of it actually), I don't trust everything in stores. So this is usually made for that purpose, although it doesn't last us even half of the week. 

Ingredients (all in room temperature):
200 gram butter (salted)
5 eggs
1 1/4 cups caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
3/4 cup water
3 cups self-raising flour

  • Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy
  • Add eggs, one at a time and continue beating
  • Add vanilla
  • Sift flour with cardamom and add them to the mixture alternating with water till well combined
  • heat your waffle maker, coat it with butter or oil, add your batter and cook till waffles are golden brown. I add small portions (as I mentioned earlier specifically for children)
