Honey cookies are popular sweet in the Balkan, they are sold in many varietes, but I'll show you how to make homemade honey cookies, which are very tasty.
50 gr grounded wallnuts
300 gr flour
100 gr oil
100 gr sugar
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon baking powder (or baking soda)
1 teaspoon vanila exctract (or vanila sugar)
1 and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven on 200 degrees Celsius.
With a mixer beat the egg and the sugar until the sugar is disolved and the mixture is light yellow and double the size.
Add the oil and the honey and mix until combined. And the wallnuts, vanila, cinnamon and mix with a spoon until combined.
Mix the baking powder with the flour and add it to the egg mixture and mix. Take out the dough and knead it. You should have soft dough.
If the dough is too sticky add little more flour, if it's too hard, little bit water. Flour the working surface and roll out the dough in 1/2 to 1 cm thickness.
With a cookie shape or a cup take out circles (or other shapes). Place them on a greased baking sheet (or lined with baking paper) but leave some space between them because they tend to rise.
Bake them 15-20 minutes until they're brownish and the edges are also brown.
Cool the cookies and then you can eat them as they are, sprinkle them with powder sugar or dip them in melted chocolate.
Great with coffee or tea. Yum :-)
