This is a recipe for the most delicious and most charming honey cookies I've tried. The taste is very similar to those from the store. They smell wonderful, I made most of them with chocolate glaze, and several only dipped in powdered sugar and a pinch of cinnamon. Sure they are delicious, without and with glaze.


  • 75 g of honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 125 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 7 g of powdered sugar
  • 250 g flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon mastic or ouzo (eventually rum)
  • pinch of mixture of nutmeg, cardamon, ginger and cloves in powder and just a little black pepper

  1. Mix the butter, egg and alcohol with a mixer.First the butter, then add the egg and the liqueur.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients - flour, cinnamon, a mixture of nutmeg and sugar.
  3. Honey is softened by slight warming, the soda is added and stirred. This mixture is added to the butter, mix and add flour.
  4. Knead shortly by hand and leave in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden.
  5. Then spread dough on the working surface, use a rolling pin if needed and make forms.
  6. Put forms on a baking pan covered with baking paper.
  7. Bake at 170 C degrees for about 10 minutes.
  8. After roasting, they can be decorated as desired or leave them as they are, since they are delicious just as they are.
  9. If you wanna make a chocolate glaze, the rule is: 100 g cooking chocolate is melted with 70 g of butter and 1 tbs oil. I boil water in a pot and put a metal plate on top and there I melt the chocolate and the butter to avoid burning if it's melted directly on the hotplate. Dip each cookie in the chocolate mixture. You'll need around 150 g of chocolate to cover all.
