    Makes: 16 cookies

    • 100g butter
    • 25g sugar
    • 2 tablespoons clear honey
    • 150g self raising flour

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Extra time:10min cooling  ›  Ready in:28min 

    1. Heat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Mix butter, sugar and honey until well blended. Sift flour into butter mixture and mix to a stiff dough.
    3. Roll into 16 balls, flatten slightly and place on a baking tray.
    4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until edges are going golden brown. (Don't be tempted to take them out of the oven before they begin to brown, or they will go soft.)
    5. Leave to cool on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. This will help them crisp up.


    Makes a great biscuit base, if you want to add sultanas or your favourite nuts.
