  • 115 grams butter
  • 85 grams caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 170 grams SR flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 60 grams honey
  • extra 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • extra 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius (fan-forced).
  • Cream butter and sugar on high speed in a stand mixer.
  • Add egg yolk and beat into mixture.
  • Add sifted flour and cinnamon, and salt and fold to combine.
  • Warm honey so that it's runny (10-20 seconds in the microwave should work well) and add to mixture.
  • Beat again until well combined.
  • Place mixture into fridge for 10-15 minutes (or until it's just firm enough to roll into balls).
  • Mix together additional sugar and cinnamon.
  • Roll mixture into walnut-sized balls (about 3cm in diameter) and coat in sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  • Space balls of mixture apart on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Remember to leave enough room for the biscuits to spread.
  • Place trays in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until a light golden colour.


Tips for making Honey Biscuits:
1. Start with good quality butter that you've left out of the fridge for at least half an hour.
2. Roll balls of the biscuit mixture in cinnamon sugar and make sure they're about the size of a walnut (roughly 3cm in diameter).
3. Remember to leave room for your biscuits to spread on the tray once they're in the oven.
Makes 24 biscuits.
Store in an airtight container.
