Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/2 c all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening, organic
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sorghum syrup

For topping

  • 1/2 cup raw sugar

Instructions
 

  • To begin, combine the flour, salt, baking soda and spices in a bowl. Stir to combine, and set it aside for now.
  • In your mixing bowl, beat the butter, shortening and brown sugar together until creamy.
  • Beat in the egg and sorghum syrup.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the cream mixture, half at a time, mixing it all in.
  • Be sure to scrape the sides of bowl to mix well.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap, or place it in a bowl with a lid. Put it in the fridge, and chill 1 – 2 hours.
  • Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line your baking stone/sheet with parchment paper. Put the raw sugar in a small bowl, 1/2 a cup or so.
  • Using a spoon or small scoop, scoop out about a rounded tablespoon of dough, and roll it into a ball. (The ball of dough should be a bout the size of a ping pong ball.)
  • Roll the ball in the raw sugar to coat it, and place it on the baking stone/sheet.
  • Bake the cookies for 9-10 minutes. They will crack slightly and still be somewhat soft.
  • Let them cool a couple minutes before removing from the paper. Transfer them to a cooling rack, and let them cool completely.
  • TIP: Using a couple sheets of parchment paper makes this job very easy. I just use one baking stone, and keep it in the oven. When one sheet is done, I slide the paper and cookies onto a cooling rack, and using another rack, slide the next batch right onto the stone. While one batch is baking, I can be preparing the other. It cuts down the time that the oven is on.
  • Enjoy!
