🍂 Five-Spice Cookies

How to prepare

Difficulty Level:        
Yield: 50 - 60 cookies


 Spices: Ingredients for dough:
Mix the following spices in a  bowl and reserve.                     
3 tsp. Ginger, ground
3 tsp. Cinnamon, ground
2 tsp. Cardamom, ground
1 1/2 tsp. Cloves, ground
1 tsp. Star Anise*, ground
1 1/2 cups (12 oz.) Unsalted Butter, room temperature
1 1/3 cups Sugar
1 tsp. Iodized Salt
3 Egg Yolks
2 tbsp. Vanilla Extract
3 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour (sift after measuring)
Reserved Spice Mixture
Raw Sugar Crystals (for decoration)
How to make the cookie dough:
  1. Place butter, sugar, and salt in a mixer with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until light and fluffy; about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add egg yolks 1 at a time. Mix after each yolk until incorporated. Turn off mixer and scrape the entire bowl with a spatula.
  3. Add vanilla extract and mix until incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine spice mix into flour and mix with a whisk until incorporated.
  5. Turn off mixer and add flour mixture to mixing bowl. Mix on low just until dough comes together. Do not overmix. Scrape the bowl as necessary.
  6. Remove the dough from the bowl and divide into 2-3 portions rolled into logs (approx. 1-1/2” wide). Place dough on a parchment lined pan, cover and chill overnight (or at least 3 hours).
  7. Cut chilled dough into 3/8” thick coins. Place coins on a new parchment lined pan with 1” between each cookie. Sprinkle sugar-in-the-raw over the top of the cookies to cover.
  8. In a convection oven: Bake at 350˚F, low fan, until edges are just turning brown (no more than 10-12 minutes). Cookies should not brown on top as it will over-cook the dough and destroy the spice flavor.
  9. In a conventional oven: Bake at 350˚F until the very center is still a bit soft and the edges are just starting to brown (approx. 13-15 minutes). Cool at room temperature.

Tip from Chef:

*You may only be able to buy Star Anise whole. If so, grind it in a coffee grinder and put it through a sifter to remove large tough parts.
