  • Summary

    Sugar cookies -- made from an easy dough that holds it shape well -- are a hallmark of the holidays. We started there, then added ground and candied ginger, along with molasses to half the dough and honey to the other half. Those additional sweeteners add flavor and also tint the dough -- handy for making candy canes and sweet pretzels.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 tablespoon finely minced candied ginger
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 large egg, room temperature
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 2 teaspoons molasses
    • 1 teaspoon honey
