Honey Gingerbread Cookies

It wouldn’t be the holiday season without gingerbread cookies … so bake a few batches of our Honey Gingerbread Cookies and gather the family around to help decorate!


For the cookies

  • 6 tbsp Sue Bee® honey
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp ginger

For the frosting

  • 1/3 cup Sue Bee® honey
  • 1 package of cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar


For the cookies

  • Combine butter, honey and molasses in a bowl. Add dry ingredients until a dough is formed.
  • Let dough chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  • Divide in half and knead each ball gently, as dough will still be soft and buttery.
  • Roll each ball to a thickness of 1/4 inch on a lightly floured board and cut dough with a cookie cutter.
  • Place shapes on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 F for 5 to 7 minutes. Watch carefully since they burn easily.

For the frosting

  • Mix all ingredients until well-combined.
  • Place into piping bag with a small tip and frost cookies. Serve and enjoy!
