To celebrate, we are making gingerbread Stars of David from my new favorite (and relatively healthy) gingerbread cookie recipe:
5 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp each of ground cinnamon and ground cloves
3 tsp powdered ginger
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter or coconut oil (vegan)
2/3 cup honey
2/3 cup molasses
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
After putting all dry ingredients in a bowl, stir well with a whisk (or sift them together if you prefer).
Blend butter, honey, and molasses.
Add dry ingredients to the wet and mix until all is wet. You may want to use your hands to incorporate everything. If you need to, add a few drops at a time of water or milk to make the dough form a ball.
Roll out dough to .25 inches thick between two pieces of wax paper.
Cut with cookie cutters of your choice
and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes.
Gobble them up!
