Recipe of the week 3: Gingerbread cookies

As tasty, christmasy, and traditional as they can be - today I'm going to share with you the perfect recipe of the gingerbread cookies.
For me, everything in this recipe was just perfect. I wouldn't change a thing and the result is great! Now I can't wait for the real Christmas time to cook the whole bunch of those for us and to share with neighbors.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter (115g)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup of molasses
  • 1/2 cup of honey
Mix together the dry ingredients (except sugar): flour,baking soda, ginger,cinnamon,nutmeg,cloves, and salt.
In another bowl mix butter with sugar until the consistency is even. Add 1 egg and beat for about 1 minute. Add molasses and honey and mix everything.
Divide the batter into 2-3 parts, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least one hour.
Meanwhile preheat the oven for 350F(180C). on a floured surface roll out the dough 1/4 inch thick and cut out the cookies. 
Place them on the baking sheet lined with parchment and freeze for 15 mins.
Cook for 10 min (medium sized cookies. Adjust cooking time depending on the size of your cookies)
Cool them before decorating. 
From this amount of ingredients you'll get 2 full baking sheets of cookies.

Enjoy!
