Since I've moved into my own house I have developed a complete and utter love for baking. It's so relaxing and honestly, it's just good fun. Therefore I thought I'd pop some of my favourite recipes up on here for you guys to recreate. If you do please share them with me on twitter (click here) or instagram (click here).
Today I want to share with you one of my recent discoveries, honey & cinnamon cookies. The original recipe had ginger instead of cinnamon but I decided to switch it up a bit. These are super easy to make and just a bit different from the usual chocolate chip mix - which means I can insist they are healthy cookies (hmm, maybe not). They should be lovely and crunchy on the outside and spongy on the inside. Perfect.
100g Caster Sugar
100g Caster Sugar
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 Tsp Biocarbonate of Soda
250g Plain Flour
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees, or Gas Mark 4.
2. Over a low heat, melt together the sugar, butter and honey. Once melted and all mixed together leave to cool for about five minutes. I usually transfer it to a mixing bowl so it's not still in a hot pan (it doesn't really matter too much if it's still warm)
3. In a seperate bowl mix the egg, vanilla, biocarbonate of soda and cinnamon.
4. Pour into the hot mix whilst stirring until all joined and mixed together.
5. Slowly add the flour to the mixed and stir until well blended.
6. Drop by spoonful onto baking trays, about 5cm apart. I did tablespoonfuls for large cookies, for smaller ones do teaspoons.
7. Bake for around 12-15 minutes, then remove from the oven and allow to cool.
8. Once cooled, sprinkle some cinnamon over the top.
Top tip: These are so yummy broken up with ice cream and blackberries with a drizzle of extra honey over the top. YUM!
