"Honey I Washed the Kids" cookies|
I improvised these cookies for a staff meeting I had at work (I work at Lush). They're named after our bestselling soap. Unfortunately, they all got devoured before I got a chance to get any pictures.
5 tbsp butter
1 cup honey
zest of 1 orange
1 tsp orange extract
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup toffee bits
Cream butter and honey, then add egg, orange extract, and orange zest and mix well. Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix well. Stir in toffee bits and drop by tablespoons on to a cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven at 350°F for 8-10 minutes.
If you want to be ambitious like me and make it look more like the soap, then you can also make up a simple icing (I used whipped cream, icing sugar, honey, orange juice, and yellow food colouring), coat the top of the cookies with it, and then use bits of clean chicken wire to imprint a honeycomb pattern on top of it.
