Yesterday I decided to make my grandma’s Honey Cinnamon Spice Cookies called in Slovakia Medovniky.
Christmas at grandma’s wouldn’t be Christmas without colorful Medovniky of different shapes and sizes.
Medovniky are cut-out cookies similar to Gingerbread cookies.
Over the years I made many versions of Spice Cookies.
For Christmas I stick to basic cut-out shapes and decorate them as I would sugar cookies.
- 3,5 cup Flour
- 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
- 10 Tbsp Unsalted Butter (melted)
- 1/2 cup Honey
- 3 Eggs
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 5 Whole Cloves (finely crushed)
- 1 Eggs
STEP 1: In a large bowl combine together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and crushed cloves.
STEP 2: Add melted butter, honey and 3 eggs. Mix it well together till combined. You will get firm cookie dough.
STEP 3: Wrap the cookie dough tightly with plastic wrap or put it into Ziploc bag. Leave it in the fridge overnight.
STEP 4: The next day preheat the oven to 400F.
STEP 5: Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/6″ thickness.Cut out the cookies with cookie cutters.
STEP 6: Place the cut out cookies on ungreased cookie sheet 2″ apart.
STEP 7: Bake the cookies for 8 minutes.
STEP 8: Meanwhile in a small bowl beat together 1 egg with 1 tablespoon of water.
STEP 9: After the cookies are done lightly brush them immediately with the egg mixture. This will give the cookies nice shine.
STEP 10: Move them onto cooling wire rack. Let them cool completely and then decorate anyway you like.Bibi's Culinary Journey
