  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup whole milk 60ml
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter 55g, ½ stick
  • ¼ cup sugar 50g
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup all purpose flour 140g plain flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

Additional ingredients for frosting

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 10g
  • ½ cup confectioners sugar 70g icing sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • In a small bowl or jug, whisk together the egg, milk, vanilla and nutmeg. Remove 3tbsp from the mixture and set it aside, refrigerated, for later. 
  • Cream together the butter, sugar and honey. Add the remaining egg-milk mixture, flour and baking soda. Mix until well combined but try not to overmix (this can all be done in food processor/stand mixer).
  • Take spoonfuls of the mixture, approx 1tbsp size, and place on a cookie sheet/lined baking sheet/tray with a bit of space between them. Try to smooth the sides a little (they will melt down a little as they cook but they won't become flat).
  • Bake in the preheated oven for approx 12 minutes until just turning brown. Allow to cool completely.
  • As the cookies cool, cream together the 1tbsp butter, confectioners sugar and 1tsp of the egg-milk mixture you saved earlier. Blend until smooth then drizzle this frosting over the cooled cookies. Allow to harden up. The cookies will keep refrigerated in a sealed container for a couple days.
