Gingerbread Cookies without Molasses

Do you love gingerbread cookies but don't have (or like) molasses? Then'll you love these molasses-free Gingerbread Cookies! This easy gingerbread cookie recipe makes warm, sweet cookies with just the right amount of spice.

Let’s get started!


Cream butter, adding sugar gradually. Beat until well combined and light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg, honey, and vinegar.


Sift all of the dry ingredients together and then blend sifted dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, working in batches, stirring after each addition.


Divide the dough into two even pieces, wrap each piece of dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 to 90 minutes.


When the dough is done chilling, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Working in sections, roll the dough to ½″ thick on a floured surface; cut into desired shapes.


Place shapes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. Gather and re-roll “scraps” of dough as needed, using all of the dough.


Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes, and then move to a cooling rack.


Repeat with remaining dough. Leave plain or decorate. Enjoy!
