Spelt and Molasses Cookies

Make 16 cookies Rated:

These little healthy numbers remind me of those pfeffernuse cookies you buy in packets at Christmas time...sort of. They are a bit more dense, and totally yummy cold from the fridge with the chocolate all nice and hard. In fact I would go so far as to suggest coating the entire cookie, but that is a bit of a pain...up to you.

The kids will like these. You will like these. Your German/Danish/Dutch grandmother will like these. (Assuming you have one!)

Christmas or no Christmas, enjoy!

I used pistachios for their brilliant colour, I whizzed them 3 sec/speed 6 and then put them through a sieve so that I got rid of the dust which tends to look less pretty on the cookies.
