1 tsp 5 mL baking powder
½ tsp 2 mL baking soda
1 tbsp 15 mL Club House® Ground Ginger

  1. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl of an electric mixer until well combined. Beat in honey, egg and French Vanilla extract, scraping down the bowl if necessary.
  2. Combine flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and beat until dough is formed. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Divide dough into 4 pieces. Roll one piece of dough on a lightly floured surface about ¼” (5 mm) thick. Cut out shapes with desired cookie cutters. Place on prepared baking sheets about 1” (2.5 cm) apart. Continue with remaining dough. Gather scraps together and reroll.
  5. Bake in preheated oven, 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire cooling rack. Decorate as desired.


  • Replace Club House® Imitation French Vanilla extract with Maple or Caramel extract.
  • For drop-style cookies, take chilled dough and drop 1 tbsp (15 mL) dough 2” (5 cm) apart on baking sheet and bake, 8-10 minutes.
