Spice Cake Cookies with Redpath Sugar Giveaway

Spice Cake Cookies with Redpath Sugar Giveaway

The holiday season is over, but who said that baking needs to stop! For me though, I did not do as much baking for Christmas as I had planned. There was a major ice storm here in Toronto and we lost power for 4 days, leading into and including Christmas. I had hoped to bake a bunch of our favourite Christmas cookies and squares, but it just didn’t happen. Now, since the ice has melted, the power is back on in our house (yeah!), and life is back to normal, I have the chance to do some of the holiday baking that never happened.

Not only do I get to show you one very tasty cookie, but there is also an awesome giveaway from my good friends over at Redpath Sugar (giveaway details are at the bottom of this post).

Spice Cake Cookies with Redpath Sugar Giveaway-3

Any person living in Canada, likely buys plenty of Redpath Sugar. This Canadian company has been around for more than 150 years and they have many different products in their line of sugars. I personally use Redpath all the time, especially for baking. Recently, they sent me a care package with a variety of sugars so I could get creative and bake something delicious.

One of kind they sell is a Demerara style sugar. This is similar to brown sugar, but has even more molasses mixed in. A sugar with deep flavour, I figured that this would work well in a cookie that tasted like a spice cake. I love the taste of spice cake, with the cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg, so turning this into a cookie with Redpath demerara style sugar sounded amazing.

The other sugar I used was the Redpath Turbinado sugar. The cookie dough was formed into 1 1/2 inch balls and then rolled in the turbinado sugar. The larger crystals of turbinado sugar gave the cookie a nice outer coating that was sweet and crackly.

The cookie was soft and cake-like in texture. There was the deep molasses flavour from the demerara sugar and the blend of spices totally reminded me of spice cake.
