  • 2 Cups and 3 tablespoons AP flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Coffee Flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh orange zest


In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter, brown sugar, Coffee Flour and egg on medium speed until well blended.

Add molasses, vanilla, and orange zest and continue to mix until thoroughly combined.

Gradually stir in dry ingredients until blended and smooth.

Divide dough in half and wrap each half in plastic and let stand at room temperature for at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare baking sheets by lining with parchment paper.

Place 1 portion of the dough on a lightly floured surface.

Lightly flour the rolling pin and roll dough to a scant 1/4-inch thick using additional flour to avoid sticking.

Cut out cookies with desired cookie cutter and space 1 ½-inches apart.

Bake 1 sheet at a time for 7-10 minutes

Remove cookie sheet from oven and allow the cookies to stand until the they are firm enough to move to a wire rack.

After cookies have cooled completely you may decorate them any way you like.
