1/4 cup dark molasses (not blackstrap)
1/4 cup honey
6 tablespoons white granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon cold whole milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup powered sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
Preheat your oven to 375ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Making the dough: Warm the molasses, honey, and sugar in a medium sized saucepan stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved.
Remove the pan from heat and stir in the spices and salt. Then stir in the milk, baking soda, and egg. Add the flour and stir until most of the flour is absorbed. Using your hands, knead the dough until the remaining flour is incorporated.
Pinch off about a teaspoon of dough and roll into 1 inch ball. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the balls of dough 1-inch apart from each other.
Bake in the oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies are just starting to brown.
Stir together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and water to make the glaze.
Glaze cookies once they are done baking.
