Hanukkah Honey and Spice Cookies (P)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

For royal icing:

  • egg whites
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

In a large mixer bowl, cream margarine and brown sugar; beat in honey and egg until well combined.

In a small bowl, combine flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and cloves; add to honey mixture. Beat on low speed until well blended. Cover dough. Refrigerate at least 1 hour, or up to 3 days.

Grease cookie sheets; set aside.

Working quickly with one-fourth of the dough at a time, roll out on floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes, including a dreidel, menorah or star. Using a spatula, place on prepared cookie sheets l inch apart. Reroll and cut scraps.

Bake in a preheated 350 F oven 7 minutes, or until done. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

Meanwhile, prepare royal icing: In a large mixer bowl, combine egg whites, confectioners' sugar, lemon juice and salt. Beat on high speed until mixture holds soft peaks.

Makes about 2 cups.

Decorate cooled cookies with royal icing around edges, using a pastry bag* fitted with tube.

*Create your own "pastry bag" by taking a small resealable plastic bag, snip off one corner, put in icing; twist bag and squeeze to decorate cookies.

Makes about 4 dozen
