Honey cookies "Pryaniki" {Пряники}

These are ancient Russian honey cookies that  were there before refined sugar…  I suspect honey didn't cost the equivalent of a small country’s economy back then. These peppermint cookies are  soft inside, and they are taste delicious the next day after baking, so it’s an excellent make-ahead cookie!


         Ingredients:
    4 egg yolks
    2 cups sugar
    16 oz sour cream
    2 tbls honey
    1 tsp baking soda 
    1 tbs vinegar 
    5 cups flour
    1 tsp vanilla 


             Glaze:
  2 egg whites
  2 1/2  cups powdered sugar
  1/2 tsp peppermint flavor
  Mix all ingredients together




 To make dough mix egg yolks with sugar.

 Add sour cream, vanilla and honey.  Pour vinegar over the baking soda.


             Mix together.
        Add flour, mix again.


     Cover with plastic wrap.
     Refrigerate for 1 hour.

     Take small pieces like 1 inch of dough out, make small balls. Use flour as needed.


      Bake on 325 F until light pink brown.


           Mix with stand mixer all frosting ingredients.

      Spread frosting on top.

    Let it dry.
Enjoy!!!

    1. You can use 1 tsp vanilla extract or any other extracts you like.

    1. I never tried with only honey, but it's sounds like a good idea. I would put about 3/4 or 1 cup honey maybe a little more flour. Let me know how it tuns out:)))
