Ingredients

  • 2 cups of brown sugar about 450 grams
  • 2 cups of white sugar
  • 4 ½ cups of flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups of soft butter or margarine
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon all spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F
  2. Using and electric mixer, Cream margarine together with eggs, gradually adding white sugar and brown sugar, until light and fluffy. (about 5 minutes)
  3. Put the remaining dry ingredients together in a large bowl, and combine together until spices are fully mixed with the flour.
  4. Pour the margarine mixture into the flour mixture and stir together until fully mixed and resembling a sticky cookie dough.
  5. Using 2 teaspoons together, place a small teaspoon size amount of cookie dough on a greased cookie tray or on parchment paper. The cookie will melt and spread thin as it cooks, so allow wide spaces between on the tray. I usually get 6 cookies per tray, can get 8 sometimes, but then the cookies butt into each other.

  6. Bake for approx 10-12 minutes until lightly golden. If the cookie is too big in size, the centre of the cookie will be raw and will need more time in the oven.
  7. Remove from oven and cool for 2 minutes on the baking tray. Remove cookies on a baking rack using a metal cookie lifter.

Recipe Notes

TIPS: If you don't allow the cookies to set on the tray and attempt to remove, they will be soft and will mush up together. Important to use a metal cookie lifter to remove. I tried a silicone lifter and the cookies didn't lift cleanly. Also, the cookies are a bit flat, you can add an extra ½ -¾ cup of flour for extra volume in the cookies.
