Ghoulish Gourmet Pt 2: Cookies

Ok so cookies may not be the most gourmet necessarily…but what high class adult doesnt love gingerbread cookies? Take one and dip it in some hot tea (or deliciously alcoholic Irish Tea) and sit back and enjoy life. Problem is aren’t gingerbread cookies usually associated with Christmas? Well problem solved.

Gingerbread Skeletons

I myself am thinking of whipping up some gingerbread skeleton men and kitties.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 1/2 cups flour, sifted
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • Animal and gingerbread people cookie cutters
  • 1 tube white decorating icing with small tip

1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter together. Add molasses and water.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, ginger, and allspice. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet and blend until the dough holds together.

3. Cover and chill for 2-3 hours.

4. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

5. Roll out dough 1/4″ thick on a lightly floured surface.

6. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters and transfer to cookie sheet.

7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheets or cooling racks.

8. Using the white decorating icing, decorate the cookies with “bones” so that they resemble skeletons.
