Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

In a separate bowl, beat butter with brown sugar. Stir in honey, molasses and yogurt. Beat dry ingredients into liquid mixture. Stir until dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl.

Roll out dough to approx. 1/2- inch thick (1 cm). Cut out 10 little figures with cookie cutter (approx. 5 inches long) or sharp knife. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Let cool. Ask children to decorate cookies with icing, candy, chocolate pieces, dried fruit, etc. Serve with a cold glass of milk.
