Honey Spice Cookies

Our sweet and spicy gift to you for being such wonderful supporters over the year is ‘Honey spice cookies’ directly from Amina’s kitchen.

Throughout the year, I search for recipes with honey. Adapted from a traditional molasses spice cookie, I assumed it would be almost identical to substituting honey. It’s better. I make these little delights small, so folks can have a few and genuinely enjoy all the exotic flavors of the recipe.

Honey Spice Cookies

Makes about 48 2” cookies

  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup honey (wildflower is great!)
  • 1 1/2 sticks of butter at room temperature
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • Raw sugar for rolling cookies
  1. Preheat the oven to 350⁰
  2. Cream butter and brown sugar together until smooth. Beat in egg, honey and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, spices and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet slowly, mixing continuously until well combined.
  5. The dough is very soft! (You might want to chill it overnight.)
  6. Pour the raw sugar into a small bowl. Take small amounts of the dough and roll them into balls about ¾-1 inch in diameter. Roll the balls in the raw sugar. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet about an inch apart.
  7. Bake for about 13 minutes until cracks begin to show. The cookies should still be very soft. If you prefer a ‘snap,’ continue cooking for another few minutes. Once cool, they will harden!
  8. Place on a cooling rack and enjoy thoroughly with friends and family.
