  • Unsalted butter — 170 g (6 oz)
  • White or Cane Sugar — 200 g (7 oz)
  • Aromatic Honey — 50 g (1.8 oz)
  • Egg — 1 pc
  • All-Purpose Flour — 280 g (10 oz)
  • Salt — 1 g or a pinch
  • Baking soda — 6 g or 1 tsp
  • Baking powder — 6 g or 1 tsp with a mound
  • Cinnamon — 6 g or 1 tsp with a mound
  • Dry ginger — 8 g or 1.5 tsp with a mound or 15 g freshly grated
  • Sugar for coating
In this recipe, we used buckwheat honey. It has a rich flavor and a brown color. It's important to use aromatic honey to ensure your cookies turn out delicious.

Beat the butter for a couple of minutes, add the sugar, and beat for another couple of minutes until the mixture becomes slightly fluffy. You can mix the sugar with the butter from the beginning and beat together for 4-5 minutes. It's acceptable for the cookies.

Add honey and egg to the dough, mix with a mixer for about 30 seconds until it's uniform. There's no need to whip the egg, just mix until even.

Combine flour with salt, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, and cinnamon. Add to the dough and mix again with the mixer until the consistency is even, about 30 seconds.

Form dough balls weighing around 50-60g each. We made ours 60g each, so the cookies are quite large. Roll each ball in sugar.

Place the balls on a silicone mat or parchment paper covering a baking sheet, leaving about 10 cm distance between each. During baking, the balls will spread significantly, hence the distance.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (355 in Fahrenheit) for 14-16 minutes.
