Exotic Spice Cookies

Super easy to make, the secret is adding the egg at the end. Exotic spices give them a phenomenal taste!

1 ½ cup spelt flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cumin
pinch ground cloves
pinch cayenne
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups coconut sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a bowl mix flour, sugar, spices, baking soda, oatmeal and salt.
  • In a mixer whip butter and add vanilla. Add dry ingredients and blend in well.
  • Add egg and let in mix in.
  • Spoon cookies onto baking sheets -about 2 tablespoons each.
  • Bake in oven until golden, about 8-10 minutes. Transfer to cookie racks to cool (unless, of course you can’t wait that long!!)

Total cooking time: 20 minutes

Servings: Makes about 30 cookies

The best secret, exotic spice to add would be cannabis. It adds healing power to what was otherwise just a snack.

Looks good spice-wise, but I'd have to agree with 'chris b' who thinks a liquid is missing. They don't seem like they could possibly work with this much dry ingredients and so little liquid.

I am a real sucker for spicy food, spicy chai tea, love anything with nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon. I used to make an American style cookie with cocoa and ground black pepper - haven't made them for ages - maybe because I eat too many! Now this recipe with the cayenne - sounds interesting indeed.
