Vanilla Honey Sugar Cookies 0 Picture


  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Honey Buttercream Frosting
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 lb. cold butter



Step 1

Beat the sugar and butter on high for 7 minutes or until very fluffy. Scrape the beans from the vanilla bean pods. Beat in the honey, egg, yolk, and vanilla beans and extract until well combined. Mix together the flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking powder and mix into the rest until well combined.
Dough can be refrigerated at this point for probably about a week, but it's not necessary.
Roll out the dough on a clean surface that is thoroughly dusted in powdered sugar. Do not use flour. Cut into shapes and place on baking sheets covered in parchment paper. Freeze the sheets of unbaked cookies for about 7 minutes or until solid. Bake at 350º for 8-11 minutes or until desired doneness is reached. Cool on wire rack.

Frost with Vanilla Honey Buttercream Frosting
Scrape the beans from the vanilla bean pod with a knife. Beat the honey and vanillas until combined. Beat in half of the powdered sugar, then the half and half. Add the rest of the powdered sugar and beat until well combined. Cut the cold butter into small cubes. Add one stick of chopped butter at a time mixing on high speed with the whisk attachment on your stand mixer. Don't add the next stick of butter until the last one is thoroughly dissolved. Beat on high speed for 5-10 minutes or until the frosting is smooth and fluffy. Don't get worried if it looks weird at first, just keep beating until it looks right.
