Lupin Flour Gingerbread Cookies

These turned out awesome, not to crunchy not too soft.

½ cup butter, softened = 115 g
3/4 cup Splenda
Dash of Stevia Extract
1 egg
1 Tbsp pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 Tbsp LorAnn Bakery Emulsion - Princess Cake and Cookie
3 tsp gingerbread seasoning blend - see note below
1 Tbsp Mollasses
1 1/3 cups lupin flour = 160 g (30 g = 1/4 cup)
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1/4 cup candied ginger (ground fine - used my magic bullet) - optional (I make my own SF Candied Ginger)

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sweetener. Beat in egg and vanilla, and extracts. Add ginger. Combine dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Measure 1/2 tbsp balls and flatten. Bake on parchment covered cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 12-16 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool. - I need to BAKE FOR 16 minutes

Yield 49 cookies

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +

I keep a container of gingerbread spices premixed in my cupboard.

1/4 cup cinnamon = 4 tbs
1/4 cup ground ginger = 4 tbs
1/8 cup allspice = 2 tbs
1/8 cup nutmeg = 2 tbs
1/8 cup ground cloves = 2 tbs

You can use whatever sweetener you like, I just happen to have a giant bag that I'm trying to use up in baking since I switched to other sweeteners.

I have a houseful of Super Bowl food, so it will take me a while to get to these. But I definitely will. By the way, I put out your lupin cheese crackers to serve, and the high carbers went wild over them. One insisted on taking home the recipe, even though I told her that it was made with a flour she would have to order online. She went home with all the leftovers!

I can't take credit for the crackers, someone else came up with those. I just LOVE them and make a batch pretty much every week. I have started adding sesame seeds to the dough and it gives it a nice flavour.

There are a bunch of recipes online. I've made 2 batches so far and messed them both up! (they got way too dry, hence why I ground some up for these cookies.)

I make them to flavour Kombucha so their dryness doesn't really matter as they get re-hydrated anyway. :0)
