We have cinnamon powder, clove powder and mainly the ginger powder in this recipe. And most of the recipe calls for molasses. I decided to make everything from scratch. Because I know that the cinnamon powder, clove powder and molasses, will be kept as such in fridge, had no idea how to use it up. I am not a big fan of these stron smell spice powders.
I remembered seeing these powders in fairprice in small bottles, I felt it was bit expensive. Mustafa also has these spice powders, but the problem is they sell in large quantities. When I don’t even know what am I going to do with the small bottles, what would I do with those 250/500 gm packets. I will stay in my freezer for ever.
I remembered having cinnamon and cloves with me, so I powdered them finely and stored in small bottles. I had ginger powder already, so it was not a problem. I adapted the recipe partially from here. In place of molasses, I substituted it with out jaggery syrup and kept fingers crossed until I got whole cookies without breaking and tasted it.
Once the icing is set, store in cookie tin. Icing is optional and you can have it as such too. The cookie is very flavourful and tasty, your kids would love it a lot, just like Aj.
