Honey Cookies

Every year as the last cookies, I bake honey cookies, that are my dad's favourite. Of course there are still some cakes missing: the beigli and our favourite poppy bars, but these will be baked only later. To me these honey cookies are the most Christmasy for many reasons: the shapes, the smell and the tradition, because in the past trees were decorated with apples and such cookies, and when these are baked it always means, that soon our family is together.

250 g honey
500 g flour
100 g butter

100 g sugar
1 egg
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
sliced almond for decoration

Heat honey and butter, until honey is melted. Add the other ingredients and knead a dough. Roll out and with a cookie cutter cut in forms as you wish. Smear cookies with egg white and add sliced almond on top. Bake for 10-12 minutes on 180°C.

Among these honey cookies I also baked Rosa's yummy Pecan Sandies, that are totally yummy and go perfect with a cup of tea while watching that winter wonderland outside.
