Earthy Cookies Recipe



it feels good to bake again :)

Today’s cookies were fun to make and filled with alternatives. so i’ll post the recipe the same way I baked it today.




  1. 2 1/4 cup flour
  2. 1/4 tsp salt
  3. Spice mix: 2 tsp ginger mixed with a bit of cardamon,  3/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cloves
  4. 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  5. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  6. 1/2 cup or one stick of butter
  7. 1 cup of sugar
  8. 1 egg
  9. 2 tsp of orange juice
  10. 1/4 cup dark brown sugar or molasses (I used a bit of molasses and light brown sugar, but it would be much better if its only molasses)
  11. 1.5 tbs vinegar



  1. preheat the oven to 175 celcius
  2. mix: oil, butter and sugar until its smooth. beat the egg and add the molasses and juice to the mixture. then add vinegar.
  3. mix all the other ingredients together then add them to the butter mixture.
  4. in a small flat plate, put about 3 TBS of sugar and keep it aside. form small or big balls of the dough, (depending on your preference) and drop the ball in the sugar. flatten the ball a bit then place it on the baking tray (white sugar facing upwards).. repeat this step until you fill up the tray.


if you made the ball slightly on the bigger size (as big as an egg), then bake the cookies for 11 minutes. if they’re smaller then 9-10 minutes are enough. make sure they cool on a wrack so that the soft spot in the middle dries up.


:), that would be it. I loved how crunchy it is from the outside while it still maintained its softness and warmth.




Bon Appetit!
