Spices provide even more flavor

In addition to honey, various spices make these cookies even more flavorful. I made them with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Of course, you can use other spices of your choice instead. For example, add vanilla, cardamom or gingerbread spice to the dough. In addition to spices, you can add lemon or orange zest to the honey pastry for more flavor.

How to shape and decorate honey cookies?

From the honey dough you can make cookies of any shape. For example, use Christmas cookie cutters. Or cut out round cookies with a drinking glass, as I did this time. You can also just cut the rolled out dough into squares and bake the cookies in the shape of square or diamond. To give the honey pastry a shiny golden color, I brushed them with an egg before baking. With a fork I drew a nice grid pattern on their surface. But all this is not a must. The honey cookies taste delicious without any decoration.

How to make honey cookies: tips and tricks

  • Use good quality honey, preferably not too runny, for the recipe.
  • You can also refine the honey pastry with other spices of your choice.
  • You can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste.
  • The amount of flour given in the recipe may vary, especially depending on how liquid your honey is. The cookie dough must be very soft, not mushy, not dry and not too firm.
  • Do not knead the dough too long, but only briefly to a homogeneous consistency, so that the cookies taste tender after baking.
  • Don’t roll the dough too thin or the honey cookies might taste dry.
  • Brushing the cookies with an egg before baking will give them a nice golden color. You can also omit the brushing.
  • Do not bake the honey cookies longer than necessary or they may taste dry. Check with a toothpick if they are baked.
  • Immediately after baking, while the cookies are still hot, they will be very soft, but will firm up as they cool.
