Island Ginger Biscuits

Sugar In The Raw | Prep Time: 1 hr | Cook Time: 30 mins | Makes 2 dozen cookies


1 cup honey
1/2 cup Sugar In The Raw®
1/4 cup unsalted butter
Pinch ground cinnamon
Pinch ground cloves
1 tablespoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
2 cups plus 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 egg yolk, beaten
1 teaspoon dark rum
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and flour 2 cookie sheets and set aside.

In a medium saucepan heat honey, sugar and butter, stirring constantly until all sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth. Stir in cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Set aside to cool.

In a large mixing bowl combine 2 cups of the flour and the egg yolk with the cooled honey mixture. Add rum and vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in a small amount of warm water and add to mixture. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make firm cookie dough.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface until about ¼ inch thick. Make cookies using an assortment of different shape cookie cutters. Place cookies on prepared sheet pans and bake 10-12 minutes or until cookies are just turning brown on the edges. Remove from oven and cool before serving.
