                     (This is an easy to make yummy Christmas cookie recipe, suitable for vegetarian) 

-12g honey                                                           -grated skin of a whole lemon
-250g flour                                                           -cinnamon
-50g butter
-50g sugar
-1 whole egg
-1 egg yellow
-1/2tsp bicarbonate soda

Heat up the honey so its a bit runny and luck warm but not hot. Mix the butter in first then add the renaming ingredients. Make a soft dough. Place the dough into a bowl, cover it and put it in the fridge for over night.

NOTE: it is going to be quite sticky so you can add a bit more flour if is difficult to mix together, but dont worry it will settle after left in the fridge.

Next day take it out from the fridge, leave it for an hour or so to let the pastry warm up a bit as it will be easier to roll out.
Use floured rolling board to roll the pastry approx 1/2 cm high then cut the shapes with cookie cuter.

Beat up the over left egg white and brush the cookies with it.

Place them on a baking tray with baking paper and bake them in a preheated 180 degrees oven for approx 10 minutes. Bake them fast, be careful not to burn them though.

You can use chocolate or other cake decoration to decorate the tops to make them look pretty :)

The cookies will keep fresh for couple of weeks if you store them in a biscuit tin.

 (Note: If you want to make it vegan, use dairy free butter and egg replacement. The texture will only be a bit different,but it will still come out lovely)

Enjoy:) And wishing you all a  wonderful Christmas!! :)
