I’m often asked about my style of cooking; how I would define my kitchen philosophy. And while I find that such a hard question to answer (because it varies all the time and is totally depended on my mood, the available time, season and occasion), I think that the name of this site says a lot.
I’m all for dishes that are pretty easy to prepare, but deliver great results because of those little things you add. I believe things like the presentation, the quality of ingredients or unusual combinations can make all the difference and can turn an ordinary meal into something just a little more special.
This also applies to these cookies. They are the kind you can always eat and it hardly ever stops after one. They are crunchy, sweet and have a delicious cinnamon sugar topping. But what makes them just a little more special is the addition of honey and brown sugar. I love how this really deepens the flavors and adds a dark, caramel-like taste.
Seeing that it’s almost Easter, I’ve used cookie cutters in the shape of baby chicks (bunnies or eggs would be nice as well). These are perfect with a cup of tea and make a great gift, because they can be easily kept for a few days.
