Can you go into Rosh Hashanah without a jar of honey cookies?! These cookies are the perfect mix of crunchy outside, soft center, and all the delicious spices reminiscent of fall. They’re also super simple to make. Eat them straight out of the oven or jazz them up a bit with a drizzle of honey-flavored frosting.

Start Cooking

Prepare the Honey Cookies

Yields 4 dozen cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat oil, honey, egg, vanilla extract, and brown sugar until nice and creamy.

  3. Whisk together the dry ingredients and slowly incorporate into the batter. Mix together until a dough is formed.

  4. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop dough out onto a cookie sheet, placing the cookies about one inch (two and a half centimeters) apart to allow for spreading. Bake for 10 minutes.

  5. Combine frosting ingredients in a small bowl. Allow cookies to cool and drizzle with frosting.

Tip:

These cookies freeze beautifully. Alternatively, you can store them covered in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

 

I used brown sugar in the recipe, since brown sugar has a higher water content than white granulated sugar and therefore increases the moisture of the dough.

 

A note on vanilla extract: Always use pure vanilla for the best-tasting treats. Since the price of pure vanilla is so high these days, I finally made my own batch during the early days of quarantine. It’s not yet at its full flavor, yet it’s still so fragrant and flavorful.

    Just tried these for Rosh Hashana, and they were AMAZING. The cinnamon and nutmeg give a nice surprise hint of autumn. I think I would try making the frosting with some maple syrup instead of honey, just to add to the kick. Thanks!
