Christmas Cookies

I was getting ready for Christmas.   Looking at all that had to be finished and thought, need cookies (or biscuits!☺)  You know for the cuppa's when everyone us home.  Phew, I seem to drink endless cups of tea and coffee with the family at home on holidays!

So here is what I threw together.   Not saying they are healthy and I will need to trial the recipe a few more times to make sure it works.   But I'm not big on following recipes unless they are super easy.

Spice molasses cookies:

100 g butter (real, not margarine)
1/4 cup black strap molasses
200g dark chocolate,  chopped into small pieces or choc chips
1/4 cup white choc chips
1/2 cup cranberries
2 teaspoons dried ginger
1 teaspoon each if ground cloves, cinnamon,  nutmeg,  all spice (can take out cloves and reduce spices to taste)
2 cups gluten free self raising (I used 1/2 white mix and 1/2 sorghum rice flour mix)
1 cup coconut sugar
1 egg

Melt butter and molasses
Combine all dry ingredients,  add melted butter and molasses,  egg and stir well.  If needed add a lite more flour.  You want a firm mix.  (Could wrap and chill for an hour and then roll out and cut shapes)

Roll and flatten 1 tablespoon of mix onto tray lined with baking paper).  Repeat until all mix is used up or do half and wrap leftover mix in plastic or baking paper and freeze for later use.

Cook in 180°C oven for approx 12-15mins.  Cool and enjoy!

Experiment with different spices, fruit, nuts etc and create your own special cookies!
