Fall Spice Cookies

September 19, 2011

Laura’s Blog Entry

The cooler weather definitely calls for some fall baking. I’m trying to have at least one homemade baked good available each week. One that is relatively healthy. Last week it was Spice Cookies.

I tweaked a recipe that I found on a box of bran flakes years ago. They are soft, chewy (due to the raisins), and have a lovely spice that makes the house smell great while they are baking. Really delicious with a cup of hot tea.

Spice Cookies

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup cold coffee
1 egg
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2  cups bran flakes cereal (I like Trader Joe’s brand plain bran flakes)
1 cup raisins

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, butter, coffee and egg; beat until well combined. Stir in the remaining ingredients.

Drop by rounded tablespoon about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Should yield around 33 cookies.

Bake 9-11 minutes. Bottom edge should just be beginning to brown. Remove immediately from cookie sheet and cool on a wire rack.
