Hanukkah Cut-Out Cookies

With Hanukkah right around the corner it’s time to make cookies! These golden, honey flavored cut-out cookies are delicious and are a traditional Hanukkah treat. Traditional cookie cutters include a Menorah, Dreidel & Star of David.


½ Cup Sugar

½ Cup Softened Butter

¼ Cup Honey

1 Egg Yolk

1 ½ Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

Decorator Icing & Sugars (Optional)

In a large bowl combine the butter and sugar. Beat until creamy. Add the honey and egg yolk. Continue beating until mixed well. Reduce mixer speed to low. Add the flour and baking powder. Beat until combined, but don’t over mix. Divide the dough in half. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Take one half of the dough out of the refrigerator and leave the other one in to keep cold. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters and place 1 inch apart on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with decorator sugars if you want. Bake for 8 minutes until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and cool for 1 minute before removing from the baking sheets. Cool completely. Decorate with frosting and sugar if desired. Makes 2 dozen cookies.
