Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter soft
  • 1/3 cup instant dissolving (fruit/berry) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fancy molasses
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Method

Line 2 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper or leave ungreased.

In bowl, beat butter, sugar and molasses until fluffy. In separate bowl, whisk all-purpose and rice flours, ginger, cinnamon, salt and cloves; stir half at a time into molasses mixture until smooth.

Divide in half; press into discs. Between waxed paper, roll out 1 disc at a time to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Using 2-inch (5 cm) star-shaped cutter, cut out stars; chill on waxed paper until firm, 30 minutes. Arrange, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on prepared pans; sprinkle with sugar.

Bake in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven until darker on bottom, 10 to 12 minutes. Let firm up for 3 minutes; transfer to racks and let cool.
