This recipe is adapted from an old Purity cookbook that was given to me by my Mom many years ago. I still use many of the recipes including this one for simple honey cookies. The original recipe added a tablespoon of orange rind to the dough - too much work for me :) but you may want to add it to yours. These cookies also hold up well should you want to sandwich them with your favorite buttercream!
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
2 c flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
¾ c butter, unsalted, at room temperature
1/3 c sugar
½ c honey
1/2 c melted white chocolate chips
1/2 c melted milk chocolate chips
What to do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line cookie sheet with parchment or silpat.
- Sift together flour baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- In another bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and honey until light and fluffy – about 4 minutes.
- Mix in the egg and beat for an additional 30 seconds or so.
- Gently mix in dry ingredients.
- Refrigerate dough for 2 hours.
- Once chilled, lightly flour your work surface and roll out dough until it is ¼ inch thick.
- Cut into desired shapes with your favorite cookie cutter(s).
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. If your cookies are less than 2 ½ inches in diameter start checking for doneness at 8 minutes.
- Cool completely. If desired drizzle with chocolate.
