I’ve received a gift from one of my readers: a new banner for my blog! Isn’t it gorgeous?
I was so thrilled when she offered to make a new banner for me – and she was really patient with all my emails and questions and doubts about choosing the photos... :)
Samanta, my dear, thank you for the banner, I absolutely loved it. You are so sweet! Sweeter than these cookies. :)
Honey drop cookies
slightly adapted from Donna Hay magazine
180g unsalted butter, softened
1 cup + 1 ½ tablespoons (218g) caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ½ cups + 2 ½ tablespoons (375g) all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup honey
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F; line two large baking sheets with baking paper.
Place the butter, sugar and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy. Add the egg and beat well. Sift over the flour and baking powder and mix to form a smooth dough.
Roll 1 leveled tablespoon of the mixture into a ball and place 2.5cm (1in) apart onto prepared sheets. Repeat with the remaining dough. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven, and then using the end of a wooden spoon make an indent in the center of each cookie. Fill each indent with ¼ teaspoon of honey, return to oven, and bake until light brown on the edges, 7 to 9 minutes more. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Makes 60 - I halved the recipe above and got 23
