  • 110 g soft butter
  • 70 g powdered sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 16 g liquid honey (I used acacia honey)
  • 200 g wholemeal flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 20 ml milk


Instructions Wholemeal cookies with cinnamon and honey

  • In a bowl, using an electric whisk, beat the soft butter with the powdered sugar and a quarter teaspoon of salt. At this point also add the liquid honey and cinnamon.
  • Now sift the wholemeal flour and half a teaspoon of baking powder and add them to the butter and sugar mix. Mix with the whisk until the dough begins to come together. At this point add the milk and work briefly by hand to make the dough soft and similar to shortcrust pastry.
  • Dust the work surface with some flour. Roll out the dough using a rolling pin to a thickness of about half a centimeter. Using a thin-rimmed glass or cookie cutter, cut out circles. Place your wholemeal cookies on the baking tray covered with baking paper or with the silicone baking mat. Mix the scraps of dough and roll out again to create other cookies.
  • Use a Christmas cookie cutter to decorate the surface of the cookies.
  • Bake in a preheated static oven at 170°C for approximately 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before serving. These cookies harden once cooled and then become softer as the days go by.
