Honey Cinnamon Cookies

I have been on a huge honey kick the last few weeks and realized that the only cookie I’ve really used honey is has been peanut butter! Peanut butter honey cookies are for sure great, but the peanut butter is the main focus, and I wanted a cookie that made honey the star. Cinnamon seemed like the perfect muted compliment to the honey, so here we are! This makes about 20 cookies. These are dense and sweet, and adding the glaze makes a huge difference in how perfect they are.

You will need:
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 egg
3 tablespoons honey
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt

And for the glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp honey

Start off by combining your oil and sugar. Beat in your honey and vanilla. Add egg and combine fully. In a separate bowl, combine your flour, salt, and baking powder, and add to the wet mixture. Add cinnamon and mix well. You will have a fairly sticky dough 🙂 wrap this dough up in some plastic wrap and refrigerate for about two hours.

Once chilled, preheat your oven to 350. Scoop rounded tablespoons on to a cookie sheet. Bake about 8-10 minutes, until edges are turning just golden brown. Remove from oven.

While cookies are cooling, beat together your honey, powdered sugar, and milk. You can dip the tops of the cookies in this glaze, or drizzle it over cookies as desired. I sprinkled a little extra cinnamon on some as well — and you’re done!
