Ingredients
For the dough
  • 12.3 oz (350 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp finely grated orange zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 oz (115 g) butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅛ cup (30 ml) honey
For the glaze
  • 4 oz (115 g) powdered sugar
  • 4 tsp milk
  • food coloring
Instructions
  1. Sift flour with baking soda and spices. Add orange zest, softened butter, honey and eggs. Knead into a dough, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours.
  2. Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface or between two sheets of baking paper and cut out using cookie cutters.
  3. Preheat oven to 356 F (180 C). Bake for around 15 minutes. Let cool completely.
  4. Make the glaze: whisk powdered sugar with milk and add food coloring of your own choice. Pipe onto cookies using piping bag which you've cut slightly on top.

  1. Can’t wait to try these! I’ve been searching for a honey gingerbread cookie recipe because my mom doesn’t eat sugar. Will make these soon!

  2. Thank you for the recipe, but for me these didn’t have enough spice. They turned out to be a nice consistency but almost no flavor. I would triple the spices to be like regular gingerbread cookies.
