Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Cookies
These Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Cookies are a great way to start the cookie season. Yes, it is that time of the year when baking is in full force. Today I wanted to share a melt in your mouth cookie that celebrates Halloween for all the little rascals out there to enjoy. This gluten-free cookie recipe is made with gluten-free flour blend, butter, honey, cinnamon, baking soda and a few drops of vanilla. The gluten-free cookie is a basic butter cookie recipe lightly flavoured with cinnamon and vanilla.
the cookie decorating does not have to be perfect as long as the cookie is 🙂
I love this Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Cookie recipe because it is excellent for decorating. So I thought, why not use it for Halloween and add some nifty cookie decorations. I will admit I am the worst person to decorate cookies or cakes. This skill is definitely, not on top of my list of accomplishments. I did my best, and my family said…as long as the cookies taste delicious, that is all that matters.
It is not about a perfectly looking cookie. It’s the texture and flavour – and this cookie has it all. The Honey Cinnamon Cookies will melt in your mouth, and they are delicious.
Easiest cookie glaze recipe,
With this Honey Cinnamon Cookie, I wanted to include a basic cookie glaze recipe. However, I wanted something more than just sweetness. Typically I would add a few drops of pure vanilla extract to the glaze. But since the cookie already has vanilla, I decided to add a few drops of fresh lemon juice and honey. The cookie glaze was magically more delicious and complimented these Honey Cinnamon Cookies perfectly. Those few drops of fresh lemon juice took away that super sweetness, which I find sometimes overpowers the delicate cookie flavour.
The cookie glaze must be made just before you are ready to decorate the cookies because the glaze will harden very quickly. While you are using the glaze, give it a good stir if it starts to set. If you want to add food colouring, I would recommend using plant based food colouring, I think it is healthier, and the colours are so vibrant and natural looking. If the glaze is too thick, always thin it out AFTER you add the food colour. And add only a few drops at a time of water until you reach the desired consistency. If you find the glaze too thin, add a few teaspoons of confectioners sugar, also known as powdered sugar.
decorating honey cinnamon cookies,
I decorated these Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Cookies with the Halloween theme because Halloween is just a few days away. But, whatever season you are celebrating, feel free to do your favourite cookie decorations. I am sure they will be much better than what I did 🙂 If you want to keep the cookie simple for everyday enjoyment, what I like to do is make the basic glaze and lightly sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar…YUM
I hope you have fun making these Honey Cinnamon Cookies as much as I did, and if you need more cookie inspiration recipes, the Grain-Free Sugar Cookies with Maple Icing or the Gluten-Free Chocolate Swirl Shortbread Cookies are heavenly.
Happy season and stay safe!
