The Catholic Mothers Conference held in Mooresville, NC, on Saturday, November 16, went very well, and Teeccino was a much-loved part of it! We were very grateful for your generosity in providing two full bags of grounds to brew and a hundred teabags to set out on the table. The attendees all received teabags in their goody bags, too, so we hope they tried some Teeccino at home if they didn’t at the conference.

After the conference ended I went back to the kitchen to collect any remaining Teeccino. I was surprised and delighted to discover that they had used up both bags of grounds and all but a couple dozen of the Dandelion Dark Roast teabags (those were not a favorite, I guess, or at least less appealing than the Dandelion Caramel Nut). They said they ran out of brewed Teeccino before the conference ended, it was such a hit with the ladies attending. 🙂 My friend Diana, holding her cup in the picture, was grateful Teeccino was an option as she has given up her beloved coffee for health reasons.’

Prep Time 1 hour

Total Time 1 hour 9 minutes
Servings 6 cookies
Calories 600kcal

Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour or Pamela's All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour
  • 3/4 cups palm sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 tbsp butter softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tbsp Teeccino Gingerbread brewed strong by using 2 tbsp Teeccino to 2 cups or 10 oz water in a drip coffee maker or french press (enjoy the remainder of Teeccino while you make your cookies!)
  • Decorations chopped apricots, almonds, walnuts, raisins, golden berries, goji berries, coconut, and any other dried fruits and nuts you enjoy.

Instructions

  • Using 2 knives or a fork, blend the flour, sugar, baking soda, spices and salt with the butter. Cut the butter into small pieces until the butter is thoroughly mixed into the dry ingredients. You can use your clean fingers to further crumble the butter while mixing it into the dry mix.
  • Using an electric mixer, blend the dry/butter mixture with the brewed Teeccino and molasses. The moisture should be thoroughly spread throughout the dough which will take a minute or so.
  • Make a ball out of the dough and cut it in half. Roll one half ¼ inch thick between 2 pieces of parchment paper. Leave the paper in place while you place the rolled dough onto a baking sheet.
  • Freeze the dough on the baking sheet for 15-20 minutes until firm. Or refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 350º.
  • Place one dough sheet on the counter. Peel off the top parchment paper. Using a cookie cutter, cut out the gingerbread people or other shapes for your cookies.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a metal spatula, place the cut out cookies onto the paper on the cookie sheet.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough, refreezing it as needed. Keep rolling out the dough scraps until they are all gone and the cookie sheet is full. Use a second sheet for the remaining dough.
  • Decorate the cookies with chopped fruits, nuts, candied ginger, coconut, etc. Have fun making your gingerbread people look different from one another!
  • Bake the cookies until an imprint with a finger is barely seen, approximately 8-9 minutes. Cool the cookies on the sheet for a couple of minutes and then use the metal spatula to place them on a wire rack or cool plate.
  • Store the gingerbread cookies in a tin or airtight container.
  • Eat the cookies while sipping a cup of Teeccino!

Congratulations on winning our $25 gift card. See Shanna’s experience below!

We always have so many amazing stories come in each month and want to thank each and every one of you for sharing!

Our star this month is Shanna Cartmell of Cartmell Chiropractic. We love that she was able to share with the Homeschool Academy that she is a member of. When parents learn about the benefits of Teeccino they often share with their children, giving us the joy of knowing that our health forming teas are making their way through generations.

Here is what Shanna had to say about her experience:

“The parents of our Homeschool Academy congregate in a fellowship hall for breakfast during the students activities. I was able to speak, and offer samples of Teeccino to the parents as well as some teenaged students. Everyone was excited, even some of the die-hard coffee drinkers were willing to give it a try! Some even knew and loved Teeccino already, so the little sample gift was fun for them to try a new flavor. I saw a few open their tee bags and made a cup before they even left the room!” – Shanna Cartmell
