Grafschafter Rübensirup -Molasse Cookies

The thick dark sugar syrup from sugar beets is very famous in the Rhineland area of Germany. It is not the same as molasse but you can use it the same way. It is a little bit fruity and extremly sweet.


A lot of spices add to the cookie batter and it makes for a warm feeling. Since it is cold and rainy in the middle of July here, these cookies will make us feel good.


recipe:
1/4 cup Grafschafter sugar beet syrup
3/4 cup soft butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tap cloves
3 tbsp coconut flower sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar


Heat the oven 170 C.
The cookie batter will need an hour to cool in the fridge.
Use 2 big bowls.
Sieve the dry in one bowl.
Beat sugar, molasse and butter creamy and add the egg.
Mix in the dry stuff and combine well. Put in the fridge to set.


Roll 1 inch balls and toss them in the coconut flower sugar and set them apart on the baking sheet.
Bake for 11 minutes.
