Recipe from National Honey Board

Makes 3 dozen

    * 1-1/2 cups honey
    * 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
    * 1 egg
    * 5 cups all-purpose flour
    * 2 teaspoons baking powder
    * 1 Tablespoon ground ginger
    * 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
    * 1 teaspoon ground cloves

In large bowl, cream honey and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon and cloves; mix until combined. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. When dough is chilled, divide dough in half; return one half to refrigerator. Dust work surface and dough with flour. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters; transfer to well-greased baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies from sheet and cool on wire rack. Repeat with remaining dough. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
