Honey Cookies

Wednesday, 24 September 2014

This is a great recipe for Rosh Hashanah (if you celebrate the Jewish New Year)! It’s quick, simple and fun to do with your toddlers or preschoolers. You don’t even need an electric mixer. I always have fun baking these cookies with my boys, who are 2 and 3 years old.

·         2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
·         1 teaspoon cinnamon
·         ½ teaspoon baking powder
·         ¼ teaspoon baking soda
·         ¼ teaspoon salt
·         ¾ cup melted butter
·         ½ cup liquid honey
·         ⅓ cup granulated sugar
·         1 egg beaten
·         Sprinkles

·         Medium bowl
·         Large bowl
·         Fork
·         Wooden spoon
·         Rolling pin
·         Cookie cutters
·         Cookie sheet
·         Parchment paper
·         Extra flour

1. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream together, butter, honey, and sugar until smooth. Then, beat in the egg.
3. Stir in flour mixture, mixing well.  Cover and refrigerate dough for about 1½ hours or until firm enough to roll and cut.
4. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
5. Roll out the dough on a well-floured surface, about one-third of the dough at a time. Sprinkle some flour onto the rolling pin each time you roll out the dough.
6. Cut dough into desired shapes using floured cookie cutters.
7. Place parchment paper onto cookie sheet, and place your cut out shapes on the cookie sheet. Add some sprinkles.
8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until lightly browned and firm to the touch.

    Makes 3 to 4 dozen cookies.
