Salty Honey Cookies (The Kitchen Paper)

"I suggest putting a little bit of salt in the glaze, too. Or you could sprinkle sea salt on top! I put about 1/8 tsp in my glaze, and thought it was a nice salty touch. If you’re iffy on the whole 'there is salt in my cookie' thing … try it next time."


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp fine cornmeal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

Want to test if your honey is pure? Do a thumb test. Put a small drop of the honey on your thumb and check to see if it spills or spreads around - if it does, it is not pure.

Make cooking a lot easier and more enjoyable by using good quality silicone baking mats. Not only are silicone mats sturdy and durable. Because they're non-stick, you can also cut your clean-up time in half.
