Christmas honey cookies (Galletas de miel y especias para Navidad)

 








All I wanted was to make this recipe before Christmas and finally here we are.

Honey and spice cookies, I made these  honey cookies and my daughter painted them.

She is seriously an artist so I asked her if she can do it because I love how she works.

She usually makes cookies for Christmas (my mom's recipe) which I have already posted but this is a new recipe.

I loved it.


This recipe is from an old magazine of recipes that we had in Chile "Paula" unfortunately no longer exists but I have several collections so I dedicate this recipe to those who worked in "Paula" Magazine from December 2002 (Pin Campaña, Paula Minte, Pia Jarpa and  Rosario Valdes who was editor in chief  many years in Paula sharing recipes to all)

Just delicious !

Merry Christmas everyone ...





Ingredients

450 grams plain flour

1 tablespoon cinnamon powder

1/2 teaspoon of cardamomo

pinch of nutmeg and ground cloves

1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

80 grams sugar

250 grams  clear honey

1 egg 

1  yolk

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2  tablespoons of milk


Method


In a bowl, combine the flour with the spices and add the lemon zest. Set aside.

In a small bowl put the sugar and honey plus a tablespoon of cold water, mix a little and then cook over low heat stirring until the honey and sugar are dissolved.

Then when the mixture is warm add the egg, the yolk and the vanilla.

Then combine this honey mixture with the spiced flour.

Then add the salt and bicarbonate dissolved in the tablespoons of milk.

Mix slowly until you have a soft dough. Let stand at room temperature for about six hours or overnight.

On a surface dusted with cornstarch, roll out  the dough (see if you need a little more flour) leave it 5mm thick.

Then butter two baking trays and cut the cookies into the desired shape (hearts, stars, Christmas trees)

Preheat the oven to 180 ° C and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Cookies has be risen and firm to the touch. Set aside to cool sightly on the baking trays, and the to a wire rack to cool completely.


Frosting

2 cups of icing sugar

2 teaspoon lemon juice

beads to decorate


In a bowl mix the whites with the icing sugar and the lemon juice, always stirring, add all the icing sugar until the desired consistency, if you want thicker, add a little more sugar.
