Spicy Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

These are amazingly soft, spicy cookies perfect for fall! They are completely made from whole wheat flour for a little added health benefit. I love having these cookies with a hot cup of coffee – yum!

½ cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup honey
1 egg
½ cup molasses
2 cup whole wheat flour
1 ½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 ½ tsp ground ginger
¾ tsp freshly ground nutmeg
¾ tsp cinnamon
¾ tsp cloves
¾ tsp all spice

Cream the butter, sugar, honey, egg and molasses in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and spices thoroughly. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet until mixed into a nice thick dough. Chill the dough for an hour. Once chilled, roll small cookie balls into white sugar and place onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes until the cookies have lightly golden bottoms. Don’t overcook, otherwise you’ll get hard cookies. Makes 3 dozen, 2 inch cookies.
