Honey Butter Cookies
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup honey
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 3 cups all purpose-flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup white granulated sugar
- ¼ cup ground almonds
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Line cookie sheets with baking paper or waxed paper. Butter paper lining, then set pans aside.
- Combine butter and honey in a bowl. Beat over medium speed until smooth and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and almond extracts.
- Combine together flour, baking powder and baking soda. Sift once. Gradually add to butter-honey mixture, about ¼ to 1/3 cup at a time, mixing after each addition until just combined.
- Spoon mixture into 1 to 1-½-inch balls and drop onto a plate or bowl containing granulated sugar mixed with ground almonds. Roll balls until lightly coated. Tap out any excess coating.
- Arrange balls on prepared cookie sheets. Flatten balls with fork tines, with 2- to 3-inch gaps between pieces to allow for expansion during baking.
- Bake for 6 to 8 or until cookie edges begin to brown. Remove cookie sheet from oven and gently transfer cookies onto wire racks to cool. Allow cookie sheets to cool down about 2 to 3 minutes before using again to prevent batter from melting. Replace baking paper as needed.
- Instead of using sugar and ground almonds for rolling, place balls onto cookie sheets, lightly press your thumb into the center of each ball to create a hollow. Fill with the sugar-almond mixture, about ¼ teaspoon, or more depending on the size of the hollowed indentation. Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes.
- Replace granulated sugar with confectioners’ sugar if desired, reducing quantity to 1/3 cup instead of ½ cup.
