Honey Ginger Cookies

I love the tradition of getting the WE Energies Cookie Book every November! Each recipe has a short personal story about where it came from. Food/recipes can tell such stories (see most food related posts in our Write Relief Blog!) and I enjoy hearing the "why." It somehow makes it taste even better and also makes me want to share with others. I try and bake for guests at Kathy's House about once a week. A muffin or cookies to grab on the way to or back from the hospital. A small #bellyhug from Right Relief :)

This holiday-flavored cookie recipe is a keeper for sure! I LOVE ginger flavored sweets during the fall/holiday season! Enjoy!


1 1/2 c. shortening

2 1/2 c. sugar, divided

2 eggs

1/2 c. honey

4 c. flour

4 tsp. baking soda

3 tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. ground ginger

1/2 tsp. salt


Preheat oven 350. Cream shortening and 2 cups sugar. Add eggs, honey; mix well. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Shape dough into 2-inch balls; roll in remaining sugar. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes. Once cooled, spread with cream cheese frosting (below).

Cream Cheese Frosting

1/2 c. butter, softened

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 tsp. vanilla

3 1/2 c. powdered sugar

Beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy; add vanilla. Gradually add powdered sugar and beat until smooth.

*This recipe came from Diny Heindel who is from Sherwood, WI*

*I made 2 batches and only frosted one. They were delicious both ways!*
