  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a food processor, combine flour, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add butter and process until butter is in tiny bits. Drizzle in molasses and honey.
  • Blend on low speed until thick crumbles start to form and the wet ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Remove the blade attachment and use your hands to form the crumbles into a dough.
  • Divide the dough into 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized balls using a spring-loaded scoop and drop onto prepared baking sheets, spacing 4” apart. Gently flatten dough with smooth side of a spatula.
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes until flattened and crisp at the edges.
  • Cool cookies on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.



Make ahead: You can make the dough up to one day ahead and store in the fridge.
Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container for up to one week in the fridge, or for 2 to 3 days at room temperature.
