Christmas Cookies: Ginger Bites

I hope you’re all enjoying spending time with family and friends on this lovely Christmas Day!  If you have some extra time, and would like some more cookies (yes please!), here’s another recipe for a delicious and easy to make cookie.

On Friday night someone suggested that this would be good with a gingerbread latte.  So maybe stop by a Starbucks, and then enjoy it with these delicious treats.

Ginger Bites
Adapted from: Sparkling Ink

7/8 tbsp of butter, softened
1/3 cup of sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
2 tbsp honey
1 cup of four
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ginger zest
Preheat the oven 350°F.

In a mixing bowl, beat the softened butter and sugar until it’s fluffy.  Then add the vanilla and honey, while you’re still mixing.  While you continue to mix the dough, add flour and baking soda a little at a time.

Divide the dough into 3 pieces, and mold each piece into a bar.  Place all three on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Press the back of a fork into the cookie dough to make the cross hatches.

Bake the cookies for 15 minutes or until lightly golden.  Allow the cookie bars to cool, and then cut them into cookie pieces.
