A blend of 6 different spices make these cookies extraordinary in flavor & texture.  The ginger flavor lingers in your mouth after the cookie is gone.  So different and so good!



2 1/4 cup flour

2 tsp baking soda

2 1/4 tsp ground Ginger

3/4 tsp Cardamom

3/4 tsp True Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Coriander

1/2 tsp Allspice

1/4 tsp Black Pepper

1/4 cup chopped Crystallized Ginger

1/2 cup shortening

1/4 cup butter (room temperature)

1 cup dark brown sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup honey

1 tsp almond extract

3/4 cup turbinado (raw) sugar


Directions:  Whisk together & then set aside:  flour, baking soda, spices, crystallized ginger, & salt.  In a large bowl, mix together with  an electric mixer until light and fluffy- brown sugar, butter & shortening.  Add egg, honey, and extract and beat until blended.  Stir in  flour mixture (with a spoon) and mix until blended.  Cover and refrigerate for one hour.  Using wet hands, form dough into 1 inch balls and then roll the balls in the turbinado sugar to coat completely.  Place sugared balls on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  Cool on a rack.
