Gingerbread Cookies, THM XO

Nothing says Christmas like freshly baked cookies…..and Gingerbread Cookies are a must. These moist chewy cookies are just perfect to get you into the holiday season.

These cookies are made with sprouted flour which taste so much like regular cookies. Sprouted flour is wheat kernels that have been sprouted, dried, and then ground into grain. Sprouting helps your body digest the grain much better.

I have chosen to use a bit of Blackstrap Molasses to help get the gingerbread flavor. There is less than 1/5 teaspoon in each cookies. Blackstrap Molasses is unsulfured molasses which is higher in calcium, potassium, selenium, magnesium, and niacin.

I used this metal Gingerbread Cookie Cutter to make these cookies. It was just the right size!

I love to use parchment paper on my baking sheets. They keep the pan clean and I can slide the entire sheet off the baking pan onto my rack to cool.

I use a small bag with the corner cut off to drizzle melted chocolate on the cookies. It works very well.
