About Egg-less Butter-less Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

Christmas without cookies and fruit cakes seems incomplete. One such cookie which is specially made during this time of the year is the gingerbread cookie. I have referred this recipe from Culinary Xpress by Alka Jena. Have made few changes in the recipe and replaced refined four with whole wheat flour and Finger-millet(ragi) flour to make it a healthy affair. You can use whole wheat flour alone as well. The recipe is egg free , butter free and without the use of molasses. I did not have the gingerbread man cookie cutter so have managed with a basic star shape. Icing is optional as the cookies taste good even without it. If you wish you can simply dust the cookies with powdered sugar.

How to make Egg-less Butter-less Gingerbread Cookies

  1. In a bowl sift both the flours with spice powders, baking powder and salt. Keep aside.
  2. In another bowl take sugar and oil and mix well.
  3. Dissolve the powdered jaggery in 3 tablespoon of water and add it to the bowl of sugar and oil. Blend well with a wire whisker.
  4. Gradually stir in dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and blend well. Gather the dough and wrap in a cling film. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  5. Remove the dough and place a portion of it on a working surface lined with parchment paper. Roll out into a ¼ inch thick sheet.
  6. Cut the cookies into desired shape using a cutter.
  7. Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius .
  8. Space cookies 1 inches apart on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Place the baking tray in fridge until the oven gets preheated.
  9. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes per batch .
  10. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to stand until they are firm enough to move to a wire rack. Repeat the process with rest of the dough.
  11. After cookies are cool they can be decorated as desired. For icing, take icing sugar in a bowl and add milk to it to get a thick icing. Put it into the icing bag ( i have used zip lock bag )and decorate the cookies.

My Tip:

Roll out the sheets thin and even to ensure they are well cooked and baked evenly from all sides.
