Honey Crinkles

Honey Crinkles

These cookies are so easy. They take hardly anytime at all. Also a good first cookie for younger bakers. The honey flavor is out of this world. I have to warn you though, these are very sweet, you could cut down on one or both sugars a bit if you want, the choice is yours. In the picture I have split open one of these babies, as you can see they are very moist inside and chewy too. Enjoy with a glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee or tea if you prefer.

Honey Crinkles

1/2 Cup Butter, softened
1 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 egg
2 Cups Flour
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Ginger
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4tsp. Salt

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream together butter, sugars, and honey till smooth. Add egg and mix till well combined. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Dough will be soft. At this point you can either proceed with rolling into balls, about 1 to 1 1/2 inches, then rolling in sugar amd placing on ungreased cookie sheet or you could put dough in fridge so it will be less sticky. If you are anything like my family you won’t mind the dough on your fingers and hands. That’s right, finger licking good!
Bake in your preheated 350 degree oven for 12 minutes, bottoms and edges will be lightly browned. Let stand on sheet 1 minute then remove to wire rack to finish cooling.

These freeze well. Simply put in freezer bag after completely cooled, remove as much air as possible, seal and place in freezer.
