IngredientsEdit

ProcedureEdit

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Lightly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking soda, ginger, allspice, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and honey on medium speed, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add the eggs and mix until smooth and light, another 2 or 3 minutes.
  6. Add the sifted dry ingredients and mix on low until the dough is evenly mixed.
  7. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured work surface.
  8. Pat into an even disk.
  9. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 20 or 30 minutes.
  10. Roll out the dough to a ¼-inch thickness.
  11. Use 5½-inch cookie cutters to cut out cookies.
  12. Transfer cookies to prepared cookie sheets, spacing them about an inch apart.
  13. Bake the cookie until they are firm, about 10 to 14 minutes, depending on size.
  14. Transfer the cookies to wire racks and let cool completely before decorating, if desired.
  15. Bake the remaining dough in batches, as directed.
  16. Frost with royal icing.
