Today we’ re baking fasting cookies with honey and cinnamon. They are very easy to make and so delicious!!! Their crispness depends on their size and thickness. Therefore you should adjust the baking time.

So have a nice cup of coffee and enjoy!!!


  • 320 g margarine
  • 50 g corn oil
  • 120 g sugar
  • 50 g honey
  • 50 g water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 10 g baker’s ammonia (or 2 tsp b.soda)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 700 g. all-purpose flour
  • ground almonds (for decoration)
  • 3 tbsp water (for brushing)
  • 1 tbsp honey (for brushing)


In the bowl of your mixer beat margarine, sugar, honey, vanilla & corn oil on medium speed, until you have a fluffy cream.

Mix ammonia & water and add it to the mixture.

Add the cinnamon and gradually the flour. Mix on low speed until completely incorporated.

Take the dough out of the bowl and smooth it with your hands. On a floured surface, roll out the dough until it gets 1 cm / 0.39” thick.

Cut out cookies using your favorite cookie cutter. Remove the excess dough. Arrange cookies on paper-lined baking trays.

Gather the dough scraps and press gently until they come together. Repeat the process until the dough is finished.

Mix honey with water and brush the cookies. Decorate with ground almonds.

Bake in a preheated oven, at 200⁰C / 400⁰F for 15 to 20 minutes depending on their size.
