Basic Icebox Cookies

Crunchy cookies lightly sweetened with honey. You can add whatever you want to suit your taste. Favourites: matcha, cocoa, coffee and pomegranate jam.

Time: 20min or less

Portions: 32 5cm diameter cookies


  • 1 Food Scale
  • 1 Bowl
  • 1 Knife / Spatula
  • Cling Wrap
  • Scissors
  • 1 Bowl / Cup with a flat bottom
  • 1 Baking Tray


  • 120g Flour
  • 60g Honey
  • 40g Margarine
  • 3-4ml Vanilla Extract


  1. Cream margarine honey and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.
  2. Add flour and mix until a stiff dough forms (the dough should come off the bowl cleanly in one big lump).
  3. Shape the dough into a log and wrap with cling wrap.
  4. Place the dough in the freezer and chill for ~5 min.
  5. Pull the dough out of the freezer and cut into 32 equal pieces.
  6. Flatten each piece to approximately 0.5cm thick with a flat surface.
  7. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  8. Place cookies in a baking tray and bake for 10-12min or until the edges turn light golden.

*NOTE* These cookies have no expanding feature. They turn out just fine even if they cook touching each other.

*NOTE2* Any cookies thicker than 0.75cm results in a rock. Trust me do not try it. It will be a pain to finish even if they are edible.

That’s it! Happy eating! ^.^
