Honeycomb Cookies

So you've made a large of batch of Honeycomb and while chomping on it isn't a problem, it would be nice to do something else with it.

Why not add some of it to a simple butter cookie dough and create some Honeycomb Cookies?

Honeycomb Cookies
[Makes 36]

125 grams softened butter
125 grams caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly whisked
250 grams plain flour, sifted
½ teaspoon baking powder
50 grams honeycomb, roughly crushed

Place the softened butter and sugar into the bowl of a mixer and beat until light and fluffy.

Add the whisked eggs, a third at a time, making sure they are absorbed before adding the next amount.

Add the sifted flour and baking powder and beat on a low speed until just combined.

Tip in the crushed honeycomb and beat for about 10 seconds.

Divide the dough into two and spread each half into the centre of a large sheet of baking paper. Use the paper to help form the dough into a sausage shape. When it has an even shape then roll up to form a tight sausage - twist the ends of the paper to ensure a snug fit. Place this in the fridge to firm overnight.

You can if you like skip this step and just roll tablespoons of the dough into balls. Flatten the tops slightly to get an even shape. Cook as per the sliced cookies.

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.

Unwrap one sausage at a time - keep the other in the fridge until you are ready to use it.

Slice evenly, giving the roll a quarter twist after each cut to help maintain it's shape.

Place the slices on baking paper lined sheets, leaving a gap for the cookies to spread.

Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cookies are golden.

Let them sit on the tray for 5 minutes before placing on wire racks to cool.

  1. Good to know that the honeycomb can be used elsewhere :) Haven't made the honeycomb yet, waiting till I finish my assessments as an emotional eater like me would probably devour the lot!

    While I've never made my own honeycomb, I'm rather partial to violet crumbles or crunchies...I might just substitute..

    Thanks for the recipe - I'm salivating LOL
