Honey-Ginger Bites
Ingredients
  • 1/3  cup  honey
  • 1/4  cup  butter
  • 2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup  granulated sugar
  • 3  tablespoons  finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground white pepper (optional)
  • 1  egg, lightly beaten
  •  Powdered sugar
Directions

1. In a small saucepan, combine honey and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until butter melts. Remove from heat. Pour mixture into a large bowl and cool to room temperature.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, granulated sugar, ginger, baking soda, and if desired, pepper. Set aside.

3. Stir egg into cooled honey mixture. Gradually stir in flour mixture until combined; knead in the last of the flour mixture by hand, if necessary. Cover and chill about 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.

4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Divide dough into 12 portions.* On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 10-inch-long rope. Cut ropes into 1/2-inch pieces. Place pieces 1/2 inch apart in an ungreased shallow baking pan.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for 6 to 8 minutes or until tops are very lightly browned. Transfer cookies to paper towels to cool. Roll in powdered sugar. Makes about 20 dozen small cookies (40 servings).
