About Gingerbread Cookies With Orange

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.
