Zac Posen’s Spiced Holiday Cookies
2 cups of plain flour
1/4 cup of almond flour
2 teaspoons of ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup salted butter
1 cup caster sugar
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon water
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup of sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Sift all the dry ingredients together. In a larger bowl, mix the sugar and the butter until fluffy. Add the water and molasses. Then add the dry ingredients to form a dough.
Take about a tablespoon-and-a-half of the dough and roll into balls. Slightly flatten with the palm of your hand and place on a tray. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes and allow 5 minutes to cool.
