Do you like gingerbread? and yoga? How about gingerbread in the shape of yoga? Then these are just for you! It’s yoga you can eat, produced by the creative minds at Baked Ideas. They’re super cute, and they’ll only cost you $35! Sorry, we’re being cute. 35 bucks is a lot in our opinion for 10 edible, yet adorable, delights. Possibly worth though, if you don’t want to go through the process of making your own cookie cutters! (in case you’re up for the challenge check out wikihow and instructables for tips on how-to. even better here’s another! OH, found a tree pose cookie cutter!)
Because we have faith in your tinkering abilities, here’s a gingerbread cookie recipe to kick off your experiment, yoga or not. And scroll down for another favorite gingerbread delectable, for the adults.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/2 tablespoon grated ginger root
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1/4 tablespoon cloves
1/4 tablespoon nutmeg
1/4 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1. In large mixing bowl, combine brown vegan sugar, syrup, molasses, banana, ginger, oil, and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer until all ingredients are well-blended and banana is smooth.
2. Separately combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon (feel free to add a pinch more cinnamon and/or cloves according to your taste). Stir with fork or whisk until well-mixed.
3. Combine dry and moist ingredients, mixing gingerly until thoroughly combined.
4. Flatten balls of dough on a cookie sheet and bake for approximately 10 minutes at 350*.
I usually double the recipe, but the yield is about 7 1/2 dozen in total!
Serves: about 4 dozen cookies
Preparation time: 15 minutes
OK now we’re getting fancy. Try making your own ginger syrup if you’ve got the time, or buy store-bought.
Ginger Syrup Ingredients:
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
- 2 sticks of cinnamon
- 3 whole cloves
- Simmer water, sugar, ginger, cloves and cinnamon stirring occasionally, until reduced to about 3/4 cup, about 15 minutes.
- Pour hot syrup through a fine sieve and chill.
- Let stand 20 minutes until using, so all sediment has settled to the bottom.
Servings: Approximately 3/4 cup.
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1/2 to 1 ounce gingerbread syrup
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Add the vodka and gingerbread syrup.
- Cover and shake vigorously until combined and chilled, about 30 seconds.
- Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Edible asanas! What more could a yogi with a sweet tooth ask for?
$35, though…maybe if they’re really big and soft…
I am really surprised YogaDork has not sampled these yet. I figured since you are in New York you would have been putting them away for a couple of weeks now.
Are you running in sync with YogaBuzz, or perhaps you ARE YogaBuzz!
There was no recipe over there, though, so now I’ll just have to link it to your blog.
So cute! You know somewhere online those cookie cutters are being sold. And thanks for posting a recipe.
Oh Bob, YJ Buzz is a respectable, reputable blog with a sober take on yoga news. I will try not to take offense. 😉
Seriously, though, this sassafras is a YD not a YJ.
kia – vegan here, so maybe that’s why. but perhaps an excellent suggestion for favorite babycakes!
Mebbe if they sold the set of molds for $35, that’d be worthwhile… but not ten cookies for the price. Ah well… 😉
sounds good, but I’m wheat and gluten free — I would blow up like the Michelen Man if I ate those!
They’d make a mint selling the cutters – Sign me up for a set.
YUM on the martinis! TOtally gonna try the from scratch ginger syrop- I AM adventurous yogini! 🙂
and perhaps I’ll sustainafy the ginger bread cookie recipe 😉 cuz ya know, it’s my schtick.
Here’s a cookie cutter for Sukhasana Pose (Easy Pose)!: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.yoga-artinmotion.com/ycookie2.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.yoga-artinmotion.com/cookies.htm&usg=__y1si8HiTLl06CEioIk0_WPZwB10=&h=664&w=617&sz=40&hl=en&start=2&um=1&tbnid=0jB4FT1yg3sVLM:&tbnh=138&tbnw=128&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dcookie%2Bcutters%2Byoga%2Bpose%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1C1GGLS_enUS349US350%26sa%3DN%26um%3D1
Just saw that Baked Ideas will be selling the cookie cutters next year…stay tuned!
the yoga cookies are now for sale ONLY at bakedideas.com!!!!!!!
Thanks for the link to the Tree Pose Cookie Cutter! I’m going to make some tree pose cookies for December’s “Cookie Yoga”. That’s an hour of restorative yoga followed by partner foot massages….. and cookies.
In December of 2010, the yoga cookie cutters are $32.00 for the Lotus Group of Poses, $32.00 for the Down Dog Group of Poses. Plus Shipping/Handling too!
I bought mine, and have posted a quite easy Gingerbread Yoga Cookie recipe on my website.
Hi from Baked Ideas!
Thanks for mentioning our cookies. Just to let you know, this year for the first time we are selling all the cutters for all of the cookies. You can get a set of 5 for $32.50.
Check out our website to see them!
So bummed they don’t ship these cutters outside of the US!! They’d be perfect for a yoga retreat we have coming up in July. They’re so cute! Anyone know of any other places that have cutters that ships to Canada? I found one on CopperGifts.com but it’s 4.5″ tall and I want to make and decorate about 200 cookies… it’s take me forever!
