Exotic Spice Cookies

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

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.

Hi Chris B., sorry to hear the bikkies aren't working out for you. Don't know if this advice is too late for you, but maybe could try adding another egg, or perhaps some milk/oat or soy milk? Add a little at a time because biscuit (cookie) recipes traditionally have a much drier consistency than a cake. Best of luck!

Am making these now and it seems the recipe is missing a liquid. Very dry and flaky cannot even form a ball. Very expensive recipe that I cannot make because it's missing something. Bad recipe. Makes me angry that i spent time and money and dry and flaky. Suggestions?
