Posted in : Cookies on by : admin

Ingrients & Directions

1 c Unsalted butter; at room
3 tb Granulated sugar
3 lg Eggs; at room temperature
1 c Sorghum syrup
2 tb Lowfat buttermilk; at room
6 3/4 c Sifted all-purpose flour
1 ts Baking soda
1 1/2 ts Ground cinnamon
Confectioners’ sugar; for

In a large bowl, place the butter and, using an electric mixer on low
speed, cream the butter. Gradually add the granulated sugar, beating on
medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating
well after each addition. Add the sorghum syrup and buttermilk. Mix well.
In a separate bowl,, sift together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until well
blended. The dough will be sticky and elastic, similar to the texture of
bread dough. Tightly wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate
overnight. The next day, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat a
baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray. On a generously floured work
surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick. The dough will be very
sticky; sprinkle lightly with flour, as needed to prevent sticking. Using a
1 1/2 inch round cookie cutter, cut out the cookies, flouring the cutter
between cuts. Place the cookies 1/4-inch apart on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle lightly with granulated sugar. Alternatively, after the cookies
are baked and cooled, using a fine-meshed sieve, dust with confectioners’
sugar. Bake on the middle oven rack until crisp and golden brown, 8 to 10
minutes. Cool on wire racks. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
