Medieval Honey Biscuits

These honey biscuits are surprisingly simple to make, but you have to eat them right away while they’re still warm otherwise I doubt they’d be very good.

Flour, salt and butter are mixed together first until they resemble course bread crumbs, and then enough water is added until it all sticks together.  This dough is rolled out, and cut with a cookie cutter (or the rim of a round glass).

These little dough circles are fried in butter or oil until lightly browned, then drained on paper towels before being brushed with hot honey (boiled over the stove) and sprinkled with cinnamon.

Taste: 8/10

I liked these more than I thought I would, but I did find them to be a little too doughy in the middle.  The honey and cinnamon on top were of course delicious!  I just wish the honey stayed on top more than it did rather than sliding off the sides.

These are really, really simple.  Just make sure you add the water slowly to make sure you don’t add too much or too little.  It’s all about getting the dough consistency correct for this one!

Cost: Cheap

You’ll need flour, salt, butter, water, honey, and cinnamon.  Not too much at all!
