Autumn Spice Cookies

Autumn Spice Cookies

This autumn spice cookie is great to serve on Samhain night or any autumn night with a warm cup of tea.  It is a cookie that leaves that little bit of warmth and tingling in your mouth after eating it. I created this cookie this morning after updating one my article called Samhain.  As I was cooking them, the spice sense filled my kitchen and my husband even enjoyed then.  That is always a true that I crated something enjoyable.  

A little extra information you may be interested in.  As you know I see magic just about in everything, especially food.  Each food has a certain symbolic meaning behind it.  Here are some interesting things that the spices in these cookies can mean.

Cinnamon:  Cinnamon increase your ability for success, healing, psychic abilities, love and protection.

Ginger:  Increases your ability for love, abundance and success

Nutmeg: Increases your ability for luck, abundance, and health

Autumn Spice Cookies

1 3/4 cup Wheat Flour
1/4 cup Cornstarch 
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 cup Unsweetened Applesauce  OR
1 stick softened unsalted butter and 2 egg whites
1 teaspoon Vanilla Paste (or extract)

Mix all of the dry ingredients together first, than add the wet ingredients.   If you use a small scoop your cookies will all be the same size.  Place the cookie dough ball in sugar and roll it around.  Place on a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper and flatten them out.  Bake at 350 degrees for 11 minutes.

Makes 2 1/2 dozens of cookies.

**Please note:  The unsweetened applesauce is used instead of the eggs and the shortening.  I have been doing this for a while now with my cakes and cookies and the items turn out moist. But you could stick to the traditional unsalted butter and egg whites.
