  • 3/4 c butter vegan
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c Waxing Kara Honey Autumn
  • 1 flax egg (1 T ground flax, 3 T water)
  • 2 tbsp. rum or rum-flavored extract
  • 2 1/4 c flour all purpose
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 c raw large granule sugar * You can use regular granulated sugar, but the larger granules of raw sugar is a nice touch
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon


  • Heat your oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use an electric mixture to mix the vegan butter, sugar, and honey until creamy (1 - 2 minutes). Add the flax egg and rum and continue mixing until combined.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg. Sift to combine.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the honey mixture. Stir until combined. The dough will be sticky so it helps to refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
  • Place the raw sugar and cinnamon in a bowl together. Stir to combine.
  • Roll the dough into 1” balls, roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place about 1.5” apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 9 - 10 minutes, until golden on the edges but still soft on the inside. These cookies firm up as they cool so to ensure a soft cookie, remove them from the oven while still fairly soft in the middle. Allow to cool on the pan for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container.
