 Ingredients List

  • 3 1/2 c All-purpose flour
  • 3 c Whole-wheat flour
  • 2 ts Ground ginger
  • 1 ts Ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Ground nutmeg
  • 1 3/4 c Molasses
  • 3/4 c Vegetable oil
  • Vegetable cooking spray


Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl; add molasses and oil,
stirring until well-blended (dough will be stiff). Knead dough 10 times.

Coat the cookie mold with cooking spray. Press the dough into the mold,
using about 4 ounces for an 8-1/2-inch cookie mold or 1 ounce for a 4-1/2-
inch mold. Trim excess dough, and turn out cookies onto a baking sheet
coated with cooking spray; carefully remove mold.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Carefully remove the cookies from
baking sheets, and let cool on wire racks. Yield: 14 large or 56 small
cookies (serving size: 1 [1-ounce] piece).

NOTES : This sweet was first presented as a favor by medieval damsels to
knights going into tournament battle. This dough is too sticky to be
rolled out. It must be pressed into the mold instead.
