Honey Shortbread

  • 500 g wheat flour
  • 250 g butter I use lurpak for extra creaminess and no palm oil.
  • 4 tbsp Raw Wild Flower Bulgarian Honey

Honey Icing

  • 300 g icing sugar
  • 1-2 tsp water
  • 1 tsp Raw Wild Flower Bulgarian Honey
  • 1 drop red food colouring You can use other colouring if you like


Honey Shortbread Instructions

  • In a glass bowl, combine the flour with the butter and mix until crumbly and almost at a doughy stage. 
  • Add in your water little by little and continue to form a soft dough. Using the end of a wooden spoon, gently punch a hole into the dough and add in the honey. Fold over the dough and knead until the honey is mixed in thoroughly.  
  • Wrap dough in clingfilm and leave in the fridge for 20 minutes. 
  • Roll dough out until 2cm in thickness and use cookie cutters to cut out shapes, place cut-outs on to a sheet of parchment and bake in the oven for 8 minutes or until golden. 
  • Leave to cool before decorating.

Honey Icing Instructions

  • In a bowl mix together your icing sugar with the water until the consistency of your choice is formed. You can always add more icing sugar if you want a thicker consistency. 
  • Add in the honey and mix.
  • Add in a drop of red colouring (or any colouring) and mix in until pale in colour and decorate your cookies however you like.
