Honey Ginger Cookies

Honey and teff have starring roles in these gingery treats.

3 cups teff flour
2/3 cup canola oil
2/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly oil a cookie sheet and set aside.

Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. (If the grated ginger is too fibrous, gather it in your hands, squeeze the juice into bowl, and discard the fibers.) Stir to form a moist dough.

Knead the dough, then shape into walnut-sized balls. Place on the cookie sheet about 3/4-inch apart. Flatten gently with a fork.

Bake 15 minutes, or until they lose their shine. Remove from the oven, and cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
