Spicy Honey Cookies Recipe. Variations

Honey Cookies!

Honey honey honey. That’s what first comes to mind just before Rosh Hashanah. You know my mean honey cake, right? Honey cookies have just joined my happy honey family. They are seriously amazing.

I use chai in my honey cookies

Honey and Chai sont deux mots qui vont tres bien ensemble! Humming to myself. Chai tea has all the good spices flavorings you want in a spicy cookie: Cardamom, ginger, cloves, cinnamon. Therefore, a strong chai tea infusion will do the trick and save you time to reach for each spice.

All Honey. No Sugar

I spread the honey love really thick. You don’t need to get expensive honey brand, even a reliable institutional honey brand will do. I like my honey dark and rich.

Honey cookies are like mini cakes

In cookie heaven, texture is everything. Examples: Chocolate chip cookies: Gooey and chewy. Oatmeal cookies and ginger cookies: Crispy and crumbly. Then come honey cookies: Plump, soft and pillowy.

So easy to make!

Just mix everything together with a mixer. As an added precaution, I add flour last. It all comes together in under 5 minutes. My kind of recipe.

Vegan Honey Cookies

They come out fantastic too! Two vegan egg substitute that work great:
– Flax egg: to each egg, substitute 1 tablespoon mixed with warm water.
– Aquafaba: bean or chickpea cooking liquid. Just because I want to make sure the liquid is in the right concentration, I like to use the liquid from canned chickpeas. I am following all the wonderful stuff made with aquafaba, and I just bought the aquafaba cookbook : Amazing recipes that look too good to be true, but they are for real! Can’t wait to try making meringue with it. Gd Knows beans and chickpeas have been around for ever, but somebody, bless his heart, has just discovered the miraculous properties of aquafaba.
