Honey and Goat Cheese Cookies

Test Description


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together flour and salt. In separate bowl, beat butter, goat cheese and 1/3 cup honey using electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture; mix on low just until the dough comes together. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Shape dough into a log about 2 inches wide and 10 inches long. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for another 30 minutes.
  4. Using a sharp knife, slice cookie dough into 24 scant 1/2-inch discs. Place cookies about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with thyme.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden and tops of cookies are dry. Drizzle with remaining honey. Cool on pans on wire racks for 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to racks and cool completely. (Store cookies in airtight container for up to 1 week.)


If you’re feeling adventurous, try replacing the thyme with rosemary or sprinkling with cracked black pepper.

For a fruity accent that’s nice at the holidays, stir in 1/4 cup dried cranberries.
