Honey Gingersnap Cookies

Products Used


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons crystallized ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • *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.


    1. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk in both gingers, cinnamon, and ground cloves. Set aside. 
    2. Cream butter, honey, and 1/2 cup sugar in bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add egg and vanilla.
    3. Add dry mixture to wet mixture and mix until combined. Chill dough for one hour.
    4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
    5. Use a tablespoon scoop to portion dough. Roll into a ball and roll into remaining sugar. Use the bottom of a glass to flatten slightly.
    6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets for two minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
