Honey Recipe

Honey Cookies
By: Shana Archibald

□ ½ cup or 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
□ ¾ cup brown sugar
□ ½ cup honey
□ 1 egg yolk
□ 2¼ cup plain flour or all purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
□ 1 teaspoon baking soda
□ ½ teaspoon ground ginger
□ 1 teaspoon cinnamon
□ Pinch of salt

Step 1
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and creamy.

Step 2
Add honey and the egg yolk. Beat again to form a creamy mixture.

Step 3
Sift in the flour, baking soda, ginger,
cinnamon, and salt.

Step 4
Beat briefly until dough starts to come together.

Step 5
Use your hands to gather the dough and form into a large ball.

Step 6
Wrap the dough in plastic and place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to rest.

Step 7
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie or oven trays with baking or parchment paper. (Aluminum foil works great too!)

Step 8
Lightly flour your counter and roll out the dough using a rolling pin (or your hands) to about ½ inch thick. Dust your rolling pin as you go to prevent the dough from sticking.

Step 9
Cut out shapes using cookie cutters (or a small jar/mug) and gently place cookies onto the prepared trays.

Step 10
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden on the edges.

Step 11
Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

This is a very ‘simple’ tasting cookie. You can pair it with your favorite tea, coffee, by themselves, or with some ice cream. Enjoy!
