FAQ — Recipe Variations, Substitutions, Storage

Can I use plant-based butter or oil in place of butter?

Yes. Dairy-free butter and coconut oil both work beautifully with this recipe.

How do I store these cookies?

These gingerbread cookies keep well lightly covered at room temperature for up to 24 hours. Otherwise, I recommend storing the dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and simply baking when ready to enjoy.

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchement paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, cloves an salt. Stir to combine.
  • In another mixing bowl combine egg, honey, molasses, and butter. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms.
  • Knead until it comes together into a smooth, uniform dough ball.
  • Place the dough onto a parchment paper-lined cutting board or countertop and using a rolling pin, roll the dough out until about 1/4" thick. Use cookie cutters of choice to cut out cookies. Combine any remaining dough and roll out, repeating the process until you've used the majority of the dough.
  • Place the cut out cookies on your prepared baking sheet (working in batches if necessary), and bake for 10 minutes or until brown, firm and slightly puffy.
  • Let the cookies cool completely, and if you prefer, decorate them with icing or frosting before serving. Enjoy!


I like to use my Maple Buttercream Frosting to decorate these cookies.
