This is the best roll out cookie recipe ever.  Super easy to make and the dough is so easy to work with.  The sprinkles didn’t stick very well, so I’m frosting the next batch.  Such a shame to have to use frosting…not.  🙂

The only change I made to the recipe is I used a 325 degree oven instead of 300.  🙂

Honey-lemon Christmas roll out cookies


5 ½ cup flour        3 teaspoons soda

1 ¾ cup sugar        ¼ teaspoon salt

¼ cup honey        2 teaspoons vanilla

3 teaspoons grated lemon or orange peel

½ lb butter melted

½ cup boiling water


Combine flour and soda – set aside.  In a large mixing bowl combine sugar, salt, honey, vanilla and lemon peel; add butter and water and beat until sugar dissolves.  Gradually stir in flour mixture to form a stiff dough.  Use immediately or cover and chill up to 2 days, or freeze.  Bring dough to room temperature before using, if frozen; leave dough wrapped as it thaws.


Grease cookie sheet – 300 degree oven – bake until golden at edges

The recipe is from my mama.  Thanks mama!  🙂
