Agave Ginger Bites

Agave-Ginger Bites

1/3 cup Agave Nectar
1/4 cup butter
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 tbsp finely chopped crystallized ginger
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
1 egg

1. In a small sauce pan, combine agave nectar and butter. Heat and stir until butter is completely melted. Remove from heat, pour into a large mixing bowl and allow to cool to room temperature.
2. In another bowl sift together flour, sugar, baking soda and pepper. Add the ginger.
3. Mix egg into the Agave mixture.
4. Gradually stir or knead the flour mixture into the agave mixture.
5. Cover and chill for at least an hour.
6. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
7. Divide dough into 4 equal portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion into ropes. Cut each rope into 1/2 inch pieces.
8. Place each piece 1/2 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet (I use parchment or silicone liners.) and bake for 6-8 minutes or until tops are lightly browned.
9. Cool on paper towels.
10. Roll in powdered sugar.
Store in an airtight container in layers separated by wax paper at room temperature up to 3 days. Freeze up to 3 months!
