Recipe: Honey Spice Cookies
I love baking cookies in December. I'm the odd one in my family in that I prefer non-chocolate baked goods. Weird, I know. LOL Of all the cookies I bake, honey spice cookies are one of my favorites. I love the combination of honey, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. They are so good!
I thought I'd share the recipe for those of you who might like to try baking them. If you do, I'd love to hear what you think.
Honey Spice Cookies
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup shortening (I use coconut oil)
1/4 cup honey or dark corn syrup
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cloves
~ Cream brown sugar and shortening in a mixing bowl
~ Add egg and honey or corn syrup and mix well
~ Combine all the dry ingredients in a second bowl
~ Stir the dry ingredients into the sugar mixture until well blended
~ Shape into balls
~ Fill a small bowl with water and another with sugar (I like using raw Turbinado sugar because it's courser)
~ Dip half the ball in water, then in the sugar
~ Place on an ungreased cookie sheet sugar side up
~ Bake at 350'F for 12-15 minutes
Makes about 2 dozen
