Sift the flours together into a large mixing bowl of an electric mixer and add the sugar and spices. Add the butter and mix using a paddle attachment until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the egg and molasses and mix until combined and the mixture starts to form into a ball.
Line your kitchen counter with non stick baking paper and turn out the mixture onto the paper.
Roll out the dough until approximately 5mm thick. If you don't have a wreath cookie cutter, like I didn't, use a fluted circular cookie cutter and then a shot glass to cut out the center of each cookie.
Once you have cut out the cookies, working one at a time, lightly moisten the top of the cookie with water and then sprinkle generously with the sanding sugar. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper while you sugar the remaining cookies.
