Ginger cookies

The kitchen is open! After three weeks of fighting with dust, paint and plaster the redecoration is over! The waiting list of recipes to make is very long: I kept them in all my pockets and in the diary. First: ginger cookies! I made them in a max version: one cookie as a dessert! In the beginning soft but with a time getting harder. Both versions worth a sin!

Original recipe is from sandwichhoss.worldpress.com

¾ soft butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3 tbsp honey
½ cup chopped, candied ginger
orange zest of 1 orange
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon gingerbread seasoning

Mix butter with sugar until fluffy. Continuing stirring add an egg and honey. Add ginger and orange zest. In another bowl mix dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, gingerbread seasoning). Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Using an ice-cream spoon place the cookie batter on a lined baking tray, leave spaces between cookies (you can fit 9 big cookies on one baking tray). Bake for 13 min. at 340F/ 170 oC. Slightly cool down the cookies before taking them off the baking tray. Leave to cool on a cooling rack. Keep the cookies in a sealed box.
