How-to Make — Step by Step
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.

- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or pink salt
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup Naturacentric Ginger Infused Honey
- 1/4 cup blackstrap molasses

- 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.

- 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.
