Ingredients


  • 1 3/4 cups (425 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. (5 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. (2 mL) ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. (2 mL) ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. (2 mL) baking soda
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Becel® Salt-Free margarine
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) molasses

Preparation

Step 1

Combine flours, spices and baking soda in medium bowl; set aside.

Step 2

Beat Becel® Salt-Free margarine, sugar and molasses in large bowl with electric mixer until blended. Beat in flour mixture gradually until well combined. Shape into 2 balls. Flatten each ball into a disc, then wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Flour dough lightly, then roll between 2 sheets plastic wrap to 0.5 cm thickness. Dip cookie cutter into flour, then cut out shapes. Arrange on prepared baking sheet, 2-inches (5 cm) apart. Repeat with remaining dough.

Step 4

Bake until firm to the touch, about 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet 1 minute. Remove to wire rack and cool completely. Store in airtight container.
