Ginger Nut Cookies
I have always loved the taste of ginger and I like creating recipes using ginger.These ginger nut cookies are delish and I know it is the ginger that makes them soooo good. Oh and nuts of course! Do you have a favorite ginger recipe?.
What You Need
1/2 Cup self-rising flour
1/2 Cup pistachio nuts ( shelled)
1/2 Cup crystallized ginger
2 Eggs (whites only)
3/4 Cup sugar
1 tsp Honey
1 tsp Orange zest ( do not get any of the white when you grate your orange skin)
Nonstick cooking spray
Wire cooling rack
Before You Start: Preheat oven to 300° and spray 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray
Lets Make It! Place flour and nuts into the food processor and pulse about 10 times ( it will look like coarse mealy flour). Pour flour mixture into a bowl and set aside. Add ginger to the food processor and pulse 6-10 times (or until finely minced) add it to the bowl of flour and mix together. Place egg whites in a separate bowl, and beat on high with a hand mixer for about 1-2 minutes ( or more) until soft peaks form. Continue beating at high speed and gradually add the sugar and honey. Continue mixing for 4-5 minutes (or until thick and glossy). Using a spoon or spatula, gently fold into the flour mixture. Drop dough by level tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 18 minutes or until firm. Remove from baking sheets, and cool on a wire rack.
Makes about 2 dozen
