Honeyprint Ginger Cookies Recipe

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350.
Cream together butter and white and brown sugar. Mix in molasses, vanilla, and eggs, beating until smooth. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda, and spices. Gradually stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients to make a stiff dough.

Thoroughly mix sugar, pepper, and ginger in a small bowl. Make sure there are no clumps of ginger. Roll balls of dough in sugar mixture to coat and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make a deep well in each ball with a finger. Place a pea-sized drop of honey in each well. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to cooling rack and let cool until stiff.

Yield: About 10 dozen
Helpful Hints

To cut the sweetness of the honey center, mix a little lemon juice into your honey before putting it in the cookies. Or mix honey with finely chopped nuts and spoon into cookies for an extra crunchy center.
