Five Spice Cookies

Five Spice Cookies

I make cookies and snacks for our music rehearsal group each week at my home and always looking for unusual things. I made this up from other recipes I had, using ingredients in the home instead of the fancy stuff. It is delicious served with an herbal Lemon/Ginger hot tea.

Preparation Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Place all ingredients (except powdered sugar) in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until the mixture looks like crumbs,
then blend continuously until the dough gathers into a ball.

Remove dough from processor.
Pinch off a walnut-sized piece of dough and roll it into a ball and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Press down lightly to flatten a little
Bake for 20 minutes or until the cookies are firm to the touch. (Check cookies after 15 or 16 minutes to prevent burning)
Cool the cookies for 10 minutes on the baking sheet,
then remove to a wire rack to continue cooling.
Once cookies are completely cooled, dust with powdered sugar if desired.

When you first process this, it will look like it's impossible to come together, but keep the processor on continuously until the dough forms a ball and pulls away from the sides. I like to divide my dough into 4 pieces then the 4 pieces into 8 then the 8 into 3 This way you get same sized cookies, more or less.

Great idea! I made these with a few tweaks: I do not own a food processor, so I followed a typical cookie method by creaming the butter and molasses (and I added a few tablespoons of sugar) then adding the dry ingredients. Also added some orange zest left over from another recipe. The five spice blend comes out in all of its awesomeness, and yes, these would be excellent with tea.

These cookies were not very sweet, even with the powdered sugar on top.
They were better warm from the oven, and just a bit flat when cooled. They were spicy; the 5 spice powder came through just fine. Perfect with tea, as the author recommended.
