I know you may think me contradictive for posting recipes when I clearly don't follow them. That's true, but I ADAPT them and change the quantities of ingredients to suit my need/taste/feeling. So please feel free to ADAPT the recipes I post... now run free and enjoy the blog.

"Honey, Cookies!!!"

Well hellohellohello!!!

I know it's been three months and I'm sorry for leaving you all lonely.

I need to wish you  A BIG belated Merry Christmas and an even BIGGER Happy New Year.
May 2014 be a year of happiness, success and more Kitchen Krusades! (hopefully...)

Below is a recipe to start the year on a sweet note with a hint of cinnamon.


Honey Cookies

(Adapted from, Honey Cookies.)

Cooking Notes:
These cookies have a crunch to them if baked at the time below but if softer cookies are preferred, bake for a shorter amount of time.

They are also quite sweet (honey, duh) so adding some toasted almonds would be a nice addition J


·         175g unsalted butter, chopped

·         ¾ cup caster sugar

·         ¼ cup honey

·         ¼ tsp cinnamon  

·         1 lightly whisked egg

·         1 tsp vanilla extract

·          cups of self-raising flour
Yep, close up on that flour


1.       Place butter, sugar and honey in a saucepan and heat on a medium heat and stir until butter has melted and the mixture is smooth.

2.       Remove from heat and pour into a bowl to cool to room temperature.

3.       Combine flour, egg and vanilla extract with the honey mixture.

Gotta mix it good


4.       Pre-heat oven to 175°C

5.       Roll mixture in balls and flatten (with three fingers, as shown) on tray lined with baking paper.

Peeta could sell these in his bakery

6.       Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

7.       Cool and eat!
