It’s official… Christmas is here. And with the arrival of the season, cookies and hot chocolate are the stars of my winter craving. These honey cinnamon cookies are one of the few crispy cookies that have caught my attention.
If you have a long time following The Cookware Geek, you will know that I cannot live without chewy cookies. But once in a blue moon, I want a change in my cookies and this recipe is a real favorite.
In Portugal, honey and cinnamon crispy cookies are a must. You know, they are the typical grandmother cookies.
In order to embrace the traditions of the country I’m currently living, why not start with the cookies?
They are great with some milk or coffee. They are made to dip and hold the shape; the cookies will not dissolve in the liquid.
Something important to take into consideration is that you will have to shape these cookies with a cookie cutter. If you just scoop some dough on the baking sheet the result will be a hard ball of something that resembles a cookie. So, shape them first 🙂
- ⅔ cup sugar
- 1 ⅔ cup flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 150 gr salted butter
- 1 egg
- 4 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Lime zest
Preheat the oven to 180ºC (360ºF)
Beat the softened butter with the sugar until a creamy and lighter paste is formed.
Add the egg, the honey, the cinnamon, the lime zest and mix.
Mix the baking powder and the flour. Toss the powder mix into the batter and mix well.
In a flat surface add some flour and extend the dough. With a cookie cutter (any form you like) shape the cookies. Place them on a baking sheet and take it to the oven for 10 minutes or until the cookies are slightly brown.
