1/4 cup honey
5 tbsp soft, unsalted butter

1 medium egg
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cocoa (optional)
2 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour
4 tsp gingerbread seasoning. Click below for the recipe:


You need ground cloves, allspice and black pepper. Best way to do it is to use the coffee grinder.
Whisk all the ingredients together.
Use your hands to knead the dough (do not overwork it). It should be slightly sticky and break apart easily, but shouldn’t stick to your hands.
Preheat the oven to 355 degrees F. Line the baking sheets with parchment paper.
Place the dough on a lightly flour-dusted work surface.
Roll it into a 1/4-inch-thick round (not thinner than 2-3 mm). You may need to flip and flour the dough lightly a few times while rolling it out to keep it from sticking. Use any cookie cutter to cut out the cookies, and transfer them to the prepared baking sheets. Remember to leave some space between the cookies.
Bake for about 10 minutes at 355 °F (180 ° C)
Remove from the oven and place the baking sheets on wire racks to cool for few minutes.
If desired you can decorate them with chocolate glaze or icing.
Cookies can be stored at room temperature, tightly covered (in sealed container) for up to several months.
They will be hard right after baking, but will soften within days. It is best to bake them few weeks before Christmas and decorate just few days before eating.

Enjoy! Smacznego!
