This honey cookie recipe is very similar to many basic drop cookie recipes, like chocolate chip cookies. It’s very easy to make.

  1. Cream butter, honey, and brown sugar in a large bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer.
  2. Beat in the eggs, orange zest, and vanilla.
  3. Mix flour with baking soda, cinnamon, and salt and then add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat to combine well.
  4. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven.
  6. Spoon or scoop dough (using a small cookie scoop) onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

TIP:-To freeze the unbaked honey cookie dough, scoop it onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (you don’t need to leave much space between the scoops since you won’t be baking them immediately). Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the dough balls are frozen solid, at least 3 hours. Transfer the dough balls to a freezer-safe, resealable plastic bag. You can store the unbaked honey cookie dough balls for up to 6 months. To bake, place the frozen cookie dough balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches in between, and bake for about 10 minutes.
