I am sure you are loaded with Christmas recipes of all sorts, but do you have recipes just for you? For One? One serving? Well, basically do you have recipes for your cravings? Maybe not, and that’s why my blog is here; to offer an alternative to those who don’t want to bake hundreds of cookies, or who never actually make cookies (yes, and cookies are not that simple. I mean GOOD cookies are not). Anyway, let’s talk about the recipe, shall we?

If you don’t believe me, I’ll tell you that: first time I made it, I didn’t have much time and I had loads of things to do. But I would never sacrifice breakfast. So, I made the dough, did what I had to do, preheated the oven and boom baked it. Less than an hour.

Even if you are not an everyday or once a week baker, you can make that.

Look how fudgy it is:

Dry ingredients:

  • 60 g all-purpose flour 1/2 cup
  • 18 g brown sugar 1 tbsp + 1/2 tsp
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1 pinch salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 24 g room temperature butter 1 tbsp + 2 tsp
  • 4 g milk 1 tsp
  • 30 g molasses 1 tbsp + 1/2 tbsp

Rolling ingredient:

  • confectioner's sugar


  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.

    Add the room temperature butter and mix it in with your hands, a pastry cutter or your fingertips.

    Then add the teaspoon or milk and the molasses. Mix with the fork until a dough forms. The dough should first look really crumbly but keep mixing and it will form a dough.

    Place the dough in cling film and place in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour.

  2. Preheat the oven at 350°F (180°C) and remove the dough from the fridge.

    Roll in confectioner's sugar and place in a baking tray in parchment paper.

    Bake for 12 minutes. Be careful not to over-bake. An optional glaze is recommended!


Happy Holiday Season to you all!
