Turta dulce – Honey and spice cookies


My favourite Christmas recipe. I bake two batches and keep those in airtight tin cans. It also makes great presents.


  • 2 eggs
  • 250 g sugar
  • 500 g flour
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

Mix ingredients together well; knead lightly on floured board for a few minutes, adding flour if necessary but trying to keep dough as soft as possible. Put in a bowl and let rest overnight or at least several hours.

Roll out small portions at a time, to 1 cm thickness. Cut with cookie cutter in any shape desired. Bake in well greased pans at 180°C.

Let the cookies cool totally before you decorate.
