Cinnamon Stars with Honey

Cinnamon Stars with Honey

The classic cinnamon stars for Christmas are made with rum flavor and nuts. If that's not quite your taste, I have a version with honey for you. Maybe you like it better? I love both very much.

You need

  • 65 g Honey
  • 50 g Syrup
  • 75 g Sugar
  • 125 g Butter
  • 375-400 g Flour
  • 1 TSP Baking Powder
  • 3 TSP Cinnamon

Here’s how to do it

  • Note: Prepare the dough the day before and refrigerate it overnight.
  • For the dough, put the honey, syrup, sugar and 35 ml of water in a small pot and let simmer over medium heat. Keep stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Then take the off stove and stir in the butter in pieces until it has melted.
  • Now add the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon to a large bowl and mix. When the syrup mixture is lukewarm, add it to the flour and knead it in with your hands or the dough hook of your mixer. Form the dough into a flat ball, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate it overnight.
  • The next day, preheat the oven to 200 °C top-bottom heat and line baking trays with baking paper. Due to the cold overnight, the dough has become very firm. You have to knead it a little bit before you can use it. Then roll it out on some flour about 5 mm thick and cut out stars. Put them on the baking tray. Repeat this until you have no more dough left.
  • Put the baking sheets one after the other into the hot oven for about 5-10 minutes.
  • Let your cookies cool on a cooling rack.
