  • 1 1/2 cups honey
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 lemon, zest grated
  • 3 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • Directions

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

      Heat honey, sugar and lemon zest in a small saucepan until 175 degrees F. Form a well out of the flour and mix in cloves and cinnamon. Pour the warm honey mixture into the well and bring dough together with a fork, just like making pasta. Knead dough with hands 2 minutes until smooth and elastic, 2 to 3 minutes.

      Cut the dough into 1 1/2-inch balls and roll each ball into 4-inch long dowels. Form each dowel into an "S" shape and place onto a greased cookie sheet. Place in oven and bake 20 to 22 minutes until light golden brown, then remove and cool on cookie rack.
