Fresh Ginger-Lemon &Honey Cookies

The Fresh lemon ginger cookies are treats those who like sour, sugary, tangy with spice.I love ginger, lemon& honey. Honey and lemon is always so soothing and the lemon and ginger really shone through and complemented each other well ;and in these cookies the honey was delicately lingering in the background... Well to be honest the ginger cookies turned out soft and lovely balance of crispy and chewy and full of ginger & lemon aroma with spicy flavor.
