Cookie Dough

  • 1/3 cup AB's Honey We think Brisbane Locale Honey works well!
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 teas baking soda
  • 1/8 teas salt


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teas almond flavouring


  • mini pretzels for antlers
  • assorted chocolates and lollies for nose and eyes


  • Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Line baking tray with greaseproof baking paper.
  • In a mixing bowl combine flour, soda and salt.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the honey¬†and cream well. Slowly add the flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Finish by hand if needed but do not overmix the dough.
  • Roll out dough on floured surface. Use a "Christmas bell" shaped cookie cutter (upside down) to cut out reindeer shapes. Alternatively, a round cutter is ok too!
  • Place cookies on baking sheet and chill for 10 minutes.
  • Once chilled, place in oven and bake 12-15 minutes or until golden.
  • Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
  • Mix together icing ingredients until desired consistency is reached.
  • After cookies have cooled, dip face of cookie into icing and place on a drying rack.
  • Position pretzels as antlers and add candy for eyes and nose.
  • Let the icing harden. Now they are ready to eat! Yum!
