Comfortable Comfort Foods Recipe Hack: Ginger Cat Cookies
This recipe hacks “Rice Flour Sugar Cookies” You’ll want a cat-shaped cookie cutter on hand. Or if you’d rather be traditional, a gingerbread-man cookie cutter will work. Follow the recipe for “Rice Flour Sugar Cookies,” with these additions:
To the flours in the small bowl, add:
- 1 T ground ginger
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground cloves
To the creamed butter, sugar, and eggs, add:
- ½ tsp bottled browning sauce (e.g. Kitchen Bouquet)
Otherwise, follow the Sugar Cookie directions.
Note: I’ve found that it works well to let the dough rest about 45 minutes, covered and refrigerated. Bring it back out to the counter for 15 minutes before rolling. This gives the rice flours time to absorb moisture, so there’s almost no grittiness in the cookies.
I sprinkled my Ginger Cats with red sugar and used cake-decorating confetti for eyes.
