Calling For Christmas Cookie Recipes — 2015 (II)

The internet puts a huge amount of useful information at our fingertips.  You can find all kinds of helpful details about history, fashion, health, music, modern culture, and faraway lands . . . but who really cares about those mundane topics, anyway?  We all know that the real godsend is the ready availability of thousands of cookie recipes.

I found the recipe below on the website and think it looks pretty good.  After all, who can resist a recipe that requires you to “coil” cookie dough?

Mini Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Ingredients:  1 cup butter, softened; 1 3/4 cups sugar, divided; 3 large egg yolks; 1 tablespoon honey plus one teaspoon honey, divided; 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour; 1 teaspoon baking powder; 1/2 teaspoon salt; 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar; 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon; 8 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped.

exps49906_th1999449d06_03_2bcCream butter and 1-1/4 cups sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks, 1 tablespoon honey and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar, then gradually add it to the creamed mixture and mix well.  Take a heaping tablespoonful of dough and roll it into a 6-inch log. In a shallow bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining sugar, then roll log in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Loosely coil the log into a spiral shape and place it on a greased baking sheet. Repeat, placing cookies 1 inch apart. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar.  

Bake cookies at 350° for 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. In a small bowl, melt baking chocolate with remaining honey; stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 2-1/2 dozen cookies.
