Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (about 1 stick), at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup applesauce, sweetened
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup light molasses or maple syrup
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon non-fat milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Sanding sugar

Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Sift together flours, baking soda, and baking powder and set aside.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine brown sugar, butter, and applesauce. Mix on medium-high until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the ginger, cinnamon, cloves, egg, and molasses and mix on medium until just combined, about 2 minutes. Add the flour mixture and stir until just combined, about 2 minutes. Refrigerate dough for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet, about 2" apart. Bake until puffed and lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes on sheet before transferring to a rack. Let cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.

Step 4

If icing cookies, whisk together sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth and thick in consistency. Load into a piping bag. Drizzle cookies with icing and sprinkle with sanding sugar. Let icing set before serving.
