How To

Preheat oven to 350° F.
Using a hand mixer, stand mixer, or mixing bowl with wooden spoon, mix the coconut oil with the brown sugar until soft and fluffy, about one minute. Add the egg, molasses, vanilla, and orange zest, and mix until combined. Add the baking soda, salt, spices, and Hungry Harry's All Purpose Flour Blend.
Mix until combined.
Split dough in half and form into discs about 1" high. Wrap in parchment or wax paper and refrigerate for at least an hour.
After the dough has chilled, unwrap and lightly dust your counter and rolling pin with Hungry Harry's All Purpose Flour Blend. Preheat your oven to 350° F. Roll the dough to 1/8" thick and cut using your favorite cookie cutters. Place on a parchment lined sheet tray and bake for 8 - 10 minutes, depending on size, turning halfway through the baking process.
Cool completely before icing. (Check out our quick and easy icing recipe here!)
