Festive Spice biscuits
1½ cups gluten free flour
½ teaspoon Himalayan salt
1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
¾ teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
Zest 1 orange
1 cup almond butter (you can buy this in jars at the health food shop or make your own if you have a high powered blender)
1 cup maple syrup
Pre heat oven to 180 degrees. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
In a large bowl mix together the almond butter and maple syrup.
In a smaller bowl, mix together the dry ingredients – the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom and zest of orange.
Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture in several batches. Stir to combine. You should have a sticky dough. Use a dessert spoon to make small balls or your hands. If the mixture is too sticky, flour your hands with gluten free flour.
Once your baking tray is full, wet your fingers and press down on each ball to create a disc. Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until brown on top.
Let the cookies cool on a wire rack.
Makes about 20 to 30 small cookies.
