How to make it

  • Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Sift together the dry ingredients. Heat the honey but do not boil. Add the shortening, then cool. Beat in the egg, then stir in dry ingredients just until blended. Let the dough rest for about 10 minutes to allow it to stiffen.
  • Shape dough into 1-1/2-inch balls. Place the balls onto a greased cookie sheet (you may flatten them slightly if you wish). Bake for 12 to 13 minutes.
  • Cool the cookies well. Place the cookies in an airtight bowl, cover tightly, and allow to ripen for about 2 weeks. Dust with confectioner's sugar before serving.
