Gingersnaps

Posted by moderndaygourmet on August 31, 2007

This is from Cooking Light. Now I know cookies aren’t really “light” but I suppose everything is relative. This is one of my very favorite cookies.

7 tablespoons butter
1 cup white sugar, divided
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 egg
1 tablespoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour

Cream butter, brown sugar, and 3/4 cup white sugar. Add egg, vanilla, and honey. Sift together flour, soda, salt, ginger and add to butter/sugar mixture. Put in freezer for 30 minutes. Put remaining 1/4 cup sugar into a bowl. Spray hands with cooking spray and roll dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in sugar. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Makes 2 dozen.
