Number of Servings: 48


    1/2 Cup Honey
    1/2 Cup Molassas
    3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
    1 egg
    1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
    1 Teaspoon Lemon Zest
    1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
    2 3/4 Cup Flour
    1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
    1/2 Teaspoon Cloves
    1/2 Teaspoon Ginger
    1 Teaspoon Nutmeg


Place honey and molassas in 2 cup microwave safe measuring cup, bring to boil (approximately 2 minutes). Remove from microwave. In medium mixing bowl, gently wisk egg, brown sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. In another mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients and stir to mix well. Add honey/mollassas mixture (which has cooled somewhat) to brown sugar bowl and mix well. Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and whisk until thoroughly combined. Cover and allow to rest in refrigerator overnight.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets. Working in small batches (because the dough will be sticky) roll on floured surface to 1/4 inch thick and cut into 48 equal pieces. Place on cookie sheets 2 inches apart. Bake for 12 minutes or until they spring back when lightly touched and only barely beginning to brown on the edges. Cool thoroughly before storing.
