Less than one week till my â€˜no-sugar, no-wheatâ€™ friend is coming. Tried yet another recipe. Found the recipe for these honey pecan cookies here (it’s actually a recipe from this book) The cookies are easy to prepare and taste very good! The only downside (I think) is the texture; itâ€™s more cake-like than cookie-like. Maybe Iâ€™ll bake them a little longer next time to give them more of a crunch on the outside. Not sure how crunchy you can actually bake cookies with honey. Honey probably doesnâ€™t allow it to bake really crispy.
The only thing I changed in the recipe is replace the flour for spelt flour and use a little more of it.
makes about 30
150 g (5 Â¼ oz / 1 generous cup) wholemeal spelt flour
Â½ ts baking soda
Â¼ ts salt
90 g (3 Â¼ oz / 1 cup) pecan nuts, chopped
75 g butter (2 â…” oz / â…“ cup) butter, melted
130 g honey (4 Â½ oz / Â¼ cup + 2 tbs)
Preheat the oven to 180ÂºC (355ÂºC). Sift the flour, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Add nuts and mix.
Mix the butter, honey and egg. Add to the flour mixture.
Drop teaspoons onto an un-greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
