Our friends gave us some honey from South Dakota on their visit this summer so I was looking for a cookie with honey for their visit this Christmas. I made these cookies and my husband and friends really liked them. The loved the citrus touch.
I did not have any ginger so added extra cinnamon.
I made this recipe years ago and my granddaughter loves them. I don't frost them. Sent some home with a friend's nephew and before he left the driveway he was eating one. He called out, "send the recipe." I am doing that now! The honey keeps the cookies moist. Freezes well.
Honey adds another layer of flavor to cookies and makes breads and rolls turn out tender.
