Honey Ginger Cookies Recipe

Updated on July 25, 2012
Cast your vote for Honey Ginger Cookies

I wanted to make cookies, but I realized I didn’t have any eggs. So I thought I would experiment with honey and oil. These honey ginger cookies are very tasty and soft with a lot of strong ginger flavor; they’re very much like little delicious gingerbread men, but without eggs or any butter. They are my take on German honey cookies. The best way to make this recipe is with a mixing bowl and a plastic/silicone spatula; just folds the ingredients together—it saves on the cleanup. Also, when measuring out the honey, spray the measuring cup with butter-flavored cooking spray—the honey just slides out. This is an easy recipe for anytime you want gingerbread cookies, and especially when it’s time to make holiday cookies.

Ingredients:

1 cup honey

3 tablespoons oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon ground ginger

½ cup sugar

2 cups All-Purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degree F.

2. Mix the honey and oil in a mixing bowling with a silicone nonstick spatula.

3. Add sugar, vanilla, and ginger.

4. Mix together.

5. Sift baking soda, powder and flour.

6. Add flour mixture to the honey and oil mixture.

7. Fold together until fully incorporated.

8. Spread dough evenly into a greased 8x8 inches baking pan.

9. Bake for 25 minutes.

10. Remove from oven and allow the large cookie to cool.

11. Cut into squares and serve plain.

(or)

12. Top with a lemon glaze (1/4 cup powdered sugar mixed with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice), plain icing (1/4 cup powdered sugar mixed with 2 tablespoons of milk) or just dust with powered sugar.
