The recipe of my (ok, not truly my) world-famous ginger cookies (I found the recipe here). It was already published in my boyfriend’s blog here, but this totally deserves to be published again, so here it goes:

100g butter
100g sugar, recommended brown
150g honey
1 egg
400g flour
a bit of salt
1 tea spoon of baking soda
2 tea spoons of blended ginger
1 tea spoon of cinnamon
1 tea spoon of hot wine spices
2 table spoons of sour cream

Mix well butter and sugar.
Peel off ginger and blend it together with an egg. Put it together with butter and sugar.
Mix baking soda with sour cream and put to the bowl for pastry (there should be butter, sugar, egg and ginger by now :) ).
Add honey and spices and mix all the ingredients well.
Add flour to make pastry of a consistence for cookies. Put it in the fridge for half an hour.

Flatten the pastry, and form the cookies (I do that by cutting it to squares with a pizza knife :) ). Heat the oven up to 180 degrees and bake the cookies for 10 – 15 minutes.
