- 1 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, soft
- 4 pouches (1 cup) Dixie Crystals Redi-Measure Light Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour*
- 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
- 1 teaspoon all-spice
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add honey, egg and salt and mix until creamy.
Sift together all remaining dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture in one step. Mix until just combined.
For easy handling, you can refrigerate dough for 30 minutes or longer.
Using a small ice cream scoop measure enough dough to form balls 3/4 inch in diameter. Roll into granulated sugar and place on cookie sheets preferably lined with parchment paper or lightly buttered. Press balls to make surface slightly flat.
Place in oven and bake for about 9 to 11 minutes or until cookies are light brown and start to “collapse”.
