Copycat Sahlep

Gluten-free Candied Ginger Molasses Cookies

I prepared this hot beverage to serve with Mia’s Gluten free candied ginger molasses cookies

This is for sure not the original recipe as the original sahlep ingredient (dried bulb from an orchid) has not been used for this recipe. This is to reproduce the consistency and the delicate spiced flavor.
