Servings   36 cookies

3/4 c honey
2 Tbls water
1 c light brown sugar, packed
1 c vegetable shortening
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
3 1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
For the glaze
1 c powdered sugar
3 to 4 tsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

To make the cookies - Place honey, water, and brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in shortening and allow to cool slightly.
Transfer honey mixture to the bowl of an electric mixer. Add salt, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg flour, and baking soda. Combine. Add eggs and mix well. Cover and store dough in fridge overnight.
The next day, preheat oven to 325 F. Grease two cookie sheets or line them with parchment. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. (Dough will be difficult to remove from bowl. If it is too stiff to roll, allow to sit at room temp for a few minutes.) Cut out cookies with a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter. Transfer dough rounds to prepared baking sheets. Bake 15 minutes, or until nicely browned.
To make the glaze - While cookies are baking, in a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, 3 tsp of milk and the vanilla until the glaze is smooth. Add more milk if needed to reach desired consistency. While cookies are still hot, brush the top of each cookie with glaze. Allow the glaze to dry completely.
