About this recipe

Hello Everyone! I had some amazing cookies at a cafe in Huaz Khaas Village the other day Immediately after coming back Home I decided to bake some of them as I could not wait to taste them again. I went to my kitchen and started collecting the ingredients from my refrigerator and kitchen store. I thought of making these using my secret ingredient Blackstrap Molasses. While I was thinking how to give those ginger cookies my own twist & taste. I found an orange in my refrigerator and there I was. This would be my twist to the traditional Gingerbread Cookies. So I started the process of making My own Gingerbread Cookies with Orange. They are a bit soft, moist & gives a kick of orange with fresh orange juice and orange zest. Brown sugar gives it a beautiful sugary crunch and wheat bran makes it a bit chewy. My version is on a healthier side with wheat bran instead of baking flour & white sugar replaced with Blackstrap Molasses. When I present them in front of my friends on Sunday brunch everyone enjoyed them with coffee and then they talked about the texture and ingredient in length too. O my god what a feeling, getting those compliments from my friends. What a wonderful time I had! I am sure when you make them you and your friends will also enjoy them as much as my friends did. So do try these in your Kitchen too.

How to cook Gingerbread Cookies With Orange

  1. In small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, & ginger; set aside.
  2. In another bowl,blend together oil, sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in molasses.
  3. Now fold in flour gradually, add orange juice and orange zest.
  4. Mix until completely combined. Cover and chill dough in refrigerator for 1-2 hour. I kept it overnight.

  6. Place the balls on parchment lined baking sheets or simply on a baking tray.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes just until tops are brown and cookies are a bit gooey inside the center. Cool on wire racks for sometime.
