Ginger Cookies

These have no sugar, and use wheat flour.  And they are yummy! 
My niece found this recipe. 
  • ½ c. softened butter
  • 1 c. honey
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ c. molasses
  • 2 tsp. vinegar
  • 3¾ c. wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 tsp. ground ginger
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp. cloves
  • 3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (optional - was not in the original recipe)
Cream butter and honey together.  Stir in beaten eggs, molasses, and vinegar.  Sift and add dry ingredients.  Mixture will be very stiff.
Drop by small spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets.  (about silver dollar size)  Flatten by dipping a glass into water and pressing cookie.
Bake at 350° for about 8-10 minutes in preheated oven.  Makes about 6 dozen small cookies.
Optional - sprinkle sugar on top while hot out of the oven.
