Honey Cinnamon Cookies

 

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2  cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/2 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

  • Topping

  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

 

Directions

  • In a small bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon thoroughly. Set aside.

  • In a larger bowl and using an electric mixer beat brown sugar and egg, then continuing with the honey and softened butter. Mixture should be smooth, without lumps.

  • Combine the floor mixture in small portions, using mixer until batter is sticky and totally combined.

  • Keep batter in bowl, cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for 2-4 hours. (batter is very sticky, so chilling allows you to roll into balls much easier)

  • Once dough has chilled, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with non-stick mats or parchment paper. (works well without)

  • MIx white sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl for the topping. Roll batter into balls about 1 to 1 1/2 inch in diameter  (20 - 24 balls) then roll them in the sugar/cinnamon mixer. Place onto the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, about 11 minute. Remove baked cookies to a cooling rack or paper towels.
