- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 2 teaspoon Cinnamon Infused Honey
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup WIldflower Honey
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and honey until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more flour, one tablespoon at a time, until it's workable.
Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a disk. Wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until the dough is firm.
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Roll out one of the dough disks on a floured surface to your desired thickness (usually around 1/4 inch thick). Use gingerbread-shaped cookie cutters to cut out your cookies. Place them on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-baking.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Decorate the cooled cookies with icing, if desired, and enjoy your honey gingerbread cookies.
You can decorate these cookies with royal icing, colored sugar, or any other decorative touches you like. They make great treats for the holiday season or any time you're in the mood for a sweet and spicy gingerbread treat with a touch of honey flavor.
