Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup Sue BeeĀ® Honey
  2. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  3. 1 teaspoon rose water
  4. 1 large egg
  5. 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  6. 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  7. 1 cup dark brown sugar
  8. 3/4 cup crystallized ginger
  9. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  10. 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  11. 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  12. 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  13. 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  14. 2 teaspoons baking soda
  15. 2 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
  16. 3/4 cup turbinado sugar
Instructions
  1. Whisk the flour, ground ginger, baking soda, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, pepper and salt in a medium bowl until blended.
  2. Mix in the crystallized ginger and set aside momentarily.
  3. In a large bowl beat the brown sugar, butter and shortening with an electric mixer until fluffy (do not overbeat-it will add too much air).
  4. Add the Sue Bee Honey, egg and rosewater; beat until blended.
  5. Stir in the flour mixture with a wooden spoon, mixing until just until blended.
  6. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  8. Lightly spray 2 cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
  9. Spoon the turbinado sugar in thick layer onto small plate.
  10. Using wet hands, form dough into 1 1/4-inch balls; roll in sugar to coat completely.
  11. Place balls on prepared sheets, spacing 2 to 3 inches apart.
  12. Bake cookies until cracked on top but still soft to touch, about 11 to 13 minutes.
  13. Cool on sheets 1 minute.
  14. Carefully transfer cookies to wire racks; cool completely.
