Recipe by Sarah Fowler

Ingredients

Biscuits

  • 3/4 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 C. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. gingerbread spice (recipe below)
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 4 Tbsp. Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening, very cold and cut into small cubes
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, very cold and cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 C. sourdough starter discard, chilled
  • Turbinado sugar for sprinkling

Gingerbread Spice

  • 3 Tbsp. Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. Spice Islands® Ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp. Spice Islands® Ground Allspice
  • 1 tsp. Spice Islands® Ground Cloves
  • ½ tsp. Spice Islands® Ground Nutmeg

Directions

Mix together all of the ingredients for the gingerbread spice. Combine flour, sugar, gingerbread spice, and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse until the butter is broken down to about the size of peas. Add sourdough starter and pulse until a crumbly dough forms. Press into a disk and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Roll out the dough and cut into gingerbread shapes. Arrange on a parchment lined cookie sheet, sprinkle with Turbinado sugar, and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before using white icing to decorate.
